About this Summit

Grand Rapids is a Midwestern town/city with a river running through it and a vital effort to activate public spaces with art. ArtPrize is a galvanizing effort in this regard and now attracts over 500,000 visitors a year leaving a wake of lots of public art. Grand Rapids Community Media Center will be among our settings for this outstanding community media gathering.
