Grand Valley kicked off the fourth annual ArtPrize competition Wednesday, September 19, with events beginning at Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids.

The Laker Marching Band, under the direction of President Thomas J. Haas for one song, performed at Rosa Parks Circle, followed by members of Grand Valley’s Dance Ensemble in a flash dance. Additional performances on Campau Street included a band boogie and the color guard, and after crossing the Blue Pedestrian Bridge, one more performance at Eberhard Center, welcoming all to Grand Valley’s ArtPrize venue.
