Entering its sixth year, ArtPrize continues its unorthodox and intriguing approach to art and the public and Cathedral Square joins in once again as a showcase venue.
Cathedral Square has been a part of the ArtPrize experience since the event's inception in 2009 and this year is no exception! For 2014, Cathedral Square will participate once again as an ArtPrize showcase venue.

Artists and visitors! For 2014 we've selected a venue theme around the idea of "rhythm", which you can read more about here.
Cathedral Square is located just a few blocks from the city center in the Heartside Neighborhood of Grand Rapids. Anchored by the historic Cathedral of Saint Andrew, Cathedral Square includes indoor exhibit space on the second floor of Cathedral Square Center where floor-to-ceiling windows allow for an infusion of natural light and the open floor plan gives visitors the opportunity to view art at their own pace. Outside, the square's gardens are an urban oasis featuring beautifully landscaped green space and meandering, pedestrian-friendly walkways that stretch from Wealthy Street (at the southernmost point) to the cathedral and Sheldon Blvd.
