AllArtWorks ArtPrize Artist Party

Sat, Sept 30th, 6-9pm

It's time to celebrate the artists of ArtPrize! All artists, whether you participated this year or not, are welcome at the AllArtWorks Artist Party. And... back by popular demand ....

The AllArtWorks Peer-to-Peer ArtPrize Artist Awards!

Prizes this year include swag bags from AllArtWorks and gift cards to Dick Blick, with a top prize of $500 in art supplies!

Vote for your fellow artists :

Coolest overall piece (top prize!)
- Most interesting (hm, I've never seen something like that, but I'm glad I have now)
- Most compelling color (...can't stop looking at it)
- Best Classical Piece (think old-timey stuff) 
- Sexiest piece (as in... whatever this means to you)
- Coolest Sculpture (... enough said)

We'll provide the refreshments and the vibes, just bring yourself!
A partnership with GRAAMA and AllArtWorks, we'll be learning more about the history of our building at 333 Cesar E Chavez SW, which was owned by prominent African American businessman Frank Lamar, and had one of the most thriving music scenes in Grand Rapids in the 1950s and 60s.
