Grand Valley Police Department


Art2Park Permit Contest


What is Art2Park?  It is an annual contest where students are given the opportunity to show off their creative side by submitting a design for the next academic years parking permit.  Designers will be asked to allow their creativity to run wild, while following university trademark and logo standards.

In the spring, we run a popular vote online contest (similar to ArtPrize) that allows the GVSU community to select the winning design.  The winner receives a parking permit good for the next year at no charge (currently $360).
