GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — The international ArtPrize competition has announced the schedule and advisory committee for a Michigan art event.

The event’s advisory committee includes museum representatives and independent curators. The group will work with ArtPrize Artistic Director Kevin Buist to invite artists from around the world to create installations for the event.
