Fall has arrived! The trees are starting to change color, there are crispy leaves to crunch on cool afternoon walks, and it’s the perfect time for apple cider during your trip to the orchard! And as you all know, it’s also the perfect time for Art Prize in downtown Grand Rapids!


For this month’s 3x3 video we made our way downtown to check out all that’s happening during Art Prize and get ourselves right in the middle of the action! There’s still a few days left to enjoy this year’s festivities so get downtown and check out all of the great art while you can.
