Get On the Bus for An ArtVenture

The Arts Council of Greater Lansing is excited to partner with the University Club MSU for an exciting road trip to Grands Rapids spectacular, international art event, ArtPrize. Join us on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016 from 7:30 a.m.- 8:30 p.m. for this exclusive bus trip that kicks off with breakfast at the U-Club followed by a full day of art, food and fun!

Best on the Planet
As the ArtPrize website notes, "ArtPrize is recognized as the most-attended public art event on the planet according to "The Art Newspaper" and was recently highlighted in "The New York Times’' 52 Places To Go in 2016."

It's no wonder, with its more than 400,000 attendees, 170 venues, including restaurants, museums, bridges, parking lots etc., and nearly 1,500 entries, it is a pretty amazing event, plus it's free and open to the public.

Perfect Timing
There are so many creative people living in the greater Lansing area, and it is only natural that they would gravitate toward an event such as ArtPrize. This year, more than 12 Arts Council artist members have their work featured in ArtPrize, and more than 30 Lansing-area artists in all are represented, so it's the perfect time to attend and support our artists.

This ArtVenture is also the perfect way to experience ArtPrize...just sit back and let the U-Club and Dean Trailways take the wheel. This ArtPrize package costs $95 and includes the following: Full breakfast, round-trip luxury coach transportation from the University Club of MSU to Grand Rapids, hors d'ourves during a cash-bar reception and three-course dinner at the University Club of Grand Rapids with its 10th floor dining and spectacular Grand Rapids views, plus all taxes and service charge.
