Did you know the Annual Convention is taking place smack dab in the middle of Grand Rapid’s famed ArtPrize®? ArtPrize® is an open art competition with installations from artists around the world, which takes place over the entire city of Grand Rapids. Join the Cities of the Urban Metro Mayors and Managers (Grand Rapids, Wyoming, Kentwood, Walker, Grandville, and East Grand Rapids) for a party in the middle of the ArtPrize® District at the Host City Reception on Wednesday, October 5, and experience ArtPrize® yourself.

While at the Annual Convention, make sure to look for the League’s own art installation. The League has donated chairs to various artists around the state to create their own individual works of art. The one-of-a-kind chairs will be displayed throughout the Convention space. Each chair will be a part of the Foundation auction and you can bid to take one home!

In support of the arts and education, the League has partnered with the Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation (GRSAF) to donate art supplies to students in the Grand Rapids district. Due to recent budget cuts, the GRSAF has taken over the responsibility for raising 100% of the funds for art and music supplies for the school district and the 19,000 youth that it serves. We see this as a great opportunity to support budding artists and to express the importance of the arts to community. Click here to learn more about what you can donate.
