ArtWalk 10 will be here soon. I am always saying this “the days are running together!”
Do you know what ArtWalk is?
It’s a smaller version of Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize. It’s a collaboration of artists, local businesses, and the lakeshore community celebrating the arts. We offer an art competition in drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media.
ArtWalk 2019 begins on September 17 and runs through October 7. Prize Money for this year’s winners is set at $7500.
