Ah yes, Art Prize is upon us, and Brothers Leather is the proud host of art displays from several (13 to be exact) different Artists. We are currently featuring floor statue displays and eleven wall hanging pieces.
For those of you that are not familiar with Art Prize, I’ll give you a brief background on the festival. Art Prize takes place annually in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the end of September and goes through the beginning of October. Thousands of Artists from around the globe have their art displayed around the city, and the public then has the opportunity to vote for the art display they believe is the best. The top seven art pieces with the most votes receive a monetary award, and artists can choose to sell their artwork as well. Art Prize has been going on for the last nine years, and attracts thousands of visitors to the Grand Rapids area every year.
Art Prize is the perfect opportunity to not only check out beautiful works of art, but to also explore the Grand Rapids area and all that it has to offer. Grand Rapids provides a wonderful mix of scenery, restaurants, shops, entertainment, and so much more. You can catch some of the most beautiful scenery right next to the Grand River, especially if you take a walk on Grand Rapids’ famous Blue Bridge. If you’re looking for something to do later in the evening, the Van Andel Arena or the new venue at 20 Monroe almost always has a event going on, whether it be a concert, Griffins’ game, or corporate event.
If you decide to explore Art Prize Nine this year, visit us at the Brothers Leather Flagship Store. We are located at 15 Division Ave S, right next to the the UICA Building on the corner of Fulton St. and Division Ave. Not only do we have some magnificent art showcased that I mentioned before, but we also have each of our products showcased and available to experience in person. The staff here is extremely friendly, and we always love to see new and familiar faces! So make sure to stop on in while you explore the Grand Rapids area.
That is all I have for now. Make sure to stop back in next week for the latest and greatest of what is happening in the Brothers community. Until then, happy Art Prize Nine!
