You’ve got that right. ArtPrize is one of the world’s largest art competition and brings artists and art enthusiasts from around the world to Grand Rapids for 3 weeks each fall. Some of the exhibits are in DeVos Place, but there are many other venues around the downtown area. Be sure to plan some time to see ArtPrize while you are here for Big Data Ignite.
We’re glad you asked. You can find out the details here or by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org

DeVos Place is located at 303 Monroe Avenue NW. DeVos Place parking is available off of Michigan just west of Monroe. Other lots are located across Monroe from DeVos Place.
Devos Place is very close to all the downtown hotels, so it is an easy 5-10 minute walk. Public transit is also available around Grand Rapids, routes 11, 13, 19, 50, 90 stop in front of the convention hall.
The DASH shuttle bus is also free and covers downtown for short trips.
Devos Place and many other attractions are within a very short walk and it is easy to use with Google Maps (the transit center is only a 15 minute walk). Grand Rapids also has both Lyft and Uber.
