GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - ArtPrize is still in need of hundreds of volunteers for this year's event in downtown Grand Rapids.
Organizers told 24 Hour News 8 they have 3,500 volunteer shifts filled but still need more people to fill about 500 remaining shifts.
The shifts available will focus primarily being an ambassador for the event and city, directing people around the area, answering questions, or working at the HUB. You can also host one of the 47 remaining artists who still need a place to stay during the event.
To help out you must create an account on the ArtPrize website and then attend a one-hour training session during the orientation period of Sept. 9-14.
The deadline to sign up to volunteer is Sept. 14.
