GRAND RAPIDS (Michigan) March 14, 2019 — Project 1 by ArtPrize, the first in a series of multi-sited exhibitions of public art taking place in the years between biennial ArtPrize competitions, today announced five artists and collectives commissioned for its debut this fall. Project 1 will take place in Grand Rapids, Michigan from Sept. 7 to Oct. 27, 2019. Differing from both ArtPrize and traditional biennials, Project 1 will focus on five artists, each producing large public artworks. Many of these artworks will occupy multiple sites throughout the city, some will function as stages for performing arts and community collaborations, while others will be geared toward audience participation.
