For the first time in the history of ArtPrize, visitors with limited mobility will have free access to wheelchairs.
Thanks to support from the Mary Free Bed Guild, home medical equipment suppliers Airway Oxygen Inc. and, of course, ArtPrize, at least 10 wheelchairs will be available for the duration of ArtPrize, which begins September 24 and will conclude October 12.
The wheelchairs and instructions on their use will be issued from the ArtPrize Hub (all you need is a photo I.D.), 41 Sheldon Blvd., SE., in downtown Grand Rapids.
Also for the first time, a 1.2 mile route (Accessart Path) has been specially curated for visitors who experience differences in mobility. Additional information about the pathway will be available at the ArtPrize Hub.
