Beyond the vast amount of fun things to do around Hope’s campus and downtown Holland, there are occasionally activities off-campus that you just can’t pass up.
The first one I’ve encountered (besides the Hope-Calvin volleyball game): ArtPrize.
Last Thursday, my First Year Seminar class all piled onto a Hope bus and had a field trip to the festival (want more information on what a First Year Seminar is? Click here.) My FYS is photography-driven, and my classmates and I had a blast taking pictures of the art and buildings in downtown Grand Rapids!
And then, we just couldn’t stay away. My four besties and I piled into my friend’s CR-V and made the 37-minute trip to Grand Rapids for some Friday night fun.
We had a great time wandering through downtown Grand Rapids to admire the art. Here’s a sneak peek of some of my favorite shots from my field trip and from our visit last night:
We had a great time wandering around to check out the art. So much of it is so inspirational, it’s a great way to get your creative juices flowing!
ArtPrize is definitely a place you’ll want to stop by as you’re traveling through your adventure at Hope if you haven’t been there already. There’s so much to see, so much to do, and the food this year was pretty awesome, too.
