GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - ArtPrize opened artist hosting registration Tuesday.
Each year before the event, artists and hosts come together online to find a good fit. Those who sign up to be hosts offer out-of-town artists a place to stay during the three-week competition in downtown Grand Rapids.
ArtPrize says hosting can be as easy offering a room or garage space to an artist.
Officials say 1,524 artists from 45 states and 47 countries will participate in ArtPrize 2013.
Registration runs from now until the beginning of the event. Those interested in being a host can sign up online.
ArtPrize 2013 runs from Sept. 18 to Oct. 6.
