GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) Every year, ArtPrize brings people from all over the world to West Michigan. Many international connections with the art world continue year round.  Grand Rapids Sister Cities has been connecting global communities for 30 years, including during ArtPrize 8.  Renata Horvath from the Grand Rapids Sister Cities shares the experience along with Inez Baturo, a visting artist from our sister city in Poland, Bialsko-Biela. Artist Nicola Renzi of Perugia, Italy, another Grand Rapids Sister City, has the installation “Every journey begins closely” at Frederik Meijer Gardens for ArtPrize 8 and was also entered in ArtPrize in 2011.  You can connect with the Grand Rapids Sister City program through this link. https://grsistercities.org/
