ArtPrize Trip to Grand Rapids
MARK YOUR CALENDAR! The Art museum is partnering with the Purdue Women’s Club to offer a trip to the Grand Rapids, MI ArtPrize®. In it's 5th year, ArtPrize® is an independently organized international art competition held for 19 days in three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids. Art from around the world pops up in every part of the downtown. It’s all free and open to the public and we will be staying at the heart of it in the exquisite Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.
Tickets for the two-day trip include lodging, transportation and admission to the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Meals are not included. The rate for members of the Art Museum and/or the Purdue Women’s Club is $199 based on double occupancy. The rate for single occupancy is $299. The non-member rates are $219/319. The ticket price includes a $30 tax-deductible donation to the Art Museum.
The group will depart from the Tippecanoe Amphitheater at 8 am on Thursday, October 9 and arrive at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel around noon. After check-in, tour members will explore the downtown ArtPrize® venues at their own pace. On Friday morning, tour members will check out of the hotel and board the motor coach at 10 am to visit the beautiful Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, an ArtPrize® venue located away from the city center. At 4 pm the group will depart for the return trip arriving back at the Amphitheater at approximately 8 pm.
