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.

DisArt is teaming with Site:Lab for the event to explain and celebrate disability in a different way. The home on Rumsey is surrounded by an enormous ramp that goes 25 feet in the air. DisArt is making good use of the ramp by putting on a fashion show there. It is bringing fashion designers from all over the country and 18 disabled models to walk the ramp. 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.

“ELEVATE: a DisArt Fashion Show” starts at 8 p.m. followed by a street party. Organizers recommend you get there early.
