MattsLens partners with Riverview Center for ArtPrize 2010
Venue: Riverview Center
Riverview Center is a four story 200,000 sq/ft historic building that was originally built by the RC Allen Company in the early 1900’s for the manufacture of mechanical calculators. Located just north of the Fish Ladder Park and just south of the prominent Sixth Street Bridge, it is situated right on the banks of the Grand River with over 1,500 feet of frontage along the Downtown River Walk. The property also is highly visible from both the 131 and I-196 expressways with over 200,000 cars passing by each day, and it benefits from an abundance of free on-site parking, which is quite rare in the downtown area.
ArtPrize is a radically open competition. Open to any artist in the world who can find space. Open to anybody in Grand Rapids, Michigan who wants to create a venue. Open to a vote from anyone who attends.
