Ride along as Bill Holsinger-Robinson, founding executive director of ArtPrize and now vice president at The Understanding Group, his wife Kate Hunt, principle at She Does Design, and their daughter hop The Rapid to ArtPrize Seven in a special video feature.

Detroit does Grand Rapids: Activi-Tree is heading to ArtPrize, and it needs your help

Activi-Tree is much more than a cool space made from a hodgepodge of repurposed (celebrity) garbage and artwork – it's a space for sharing ideas and building relationships. And you can help program it when it comes to ArtPrize. Check out this unique DET to GRR collaboration in advance of the upcoming ArtPrize Seven.
