GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) A unique show promises a memorable experience during ArtPrize Eight. “ELEVATE: a DisArt Fashion Show” takes place at 333 Rumsey Street SW in Grand Rapids on September 24.

The event also includes a state-of-the-art light show and video projections. It is barrier free and captioned and a hearing loop is available.
