Art.Downtown 2014 will take place this Friday in Grand Rapids and feature over 450 local artists.
Jen Schaub is coordinator of the event and tells WOOD Radio, Art.Downtown will be hosted by businesses in Grand Rapids from 6 to 11 p.m.
"Art.Downtown has been taking place in the Heartside area for the last five years. Each year, the event is refreshed because we get new and exciting shows, as well as brand new venues."
According to a press release, visitors will become active participants when they visit shows such as the Big Block Party, Yours Truly : An Evening of Greetings and Letters, and SiTE:LAB’s Blacktop, which features a pop-up skate park.
"The event is walkable, although there are 3 free trollies that tour downtown. One of our exciting interactive events would be SiTE:LAB, that's located behind the Cottage Bar on LaGrave. There, you'll find live music and a temprary skate park."
