Grand Haven ArtWalk to kick off this week


For visitors looking to expand their Grand Rapids' ArtPrize experience, Grand Haven, Michigan, on the west coast of Lake Michigan, is the place to go. A half-hour drive from Grand Rapids, Grand Haven is home to many painters and sculptors, and to a beautiful beach!
Grand Haven ArtWalk takes place from September 22 through October 9, 2010, and is planned to showcase artistic efforts from the local area and beyond. There will be outdoor sculpture along the Grand River Waterfront, in Central Park, and in other locations around town. Paintings, mixed media, indoor sculpture and photographs will be on view in businesses and community buildings throughout Downtown, CenterTown, and the Waterfront.
Visitors to Grand Haven can easily reach these areas on foot, experiencing a walking art tour and the local charm of Grand Haven at the same time. Stay tuned for details on more festivities, including street parties, artist receptions, and a children's art activity, all during the three-week event!
After perusing the streets and considering the art, the public will be able to vote on their favorites. From these votes, the winners in three categories will be awarded cash prizes at an awards ceremony held on Grand Haven's waterfront at the conclusion of the ArtWalk.
