Join us on September 24 from 9-11 as we announce the winners of the 54Jeff design competition.

This open one-stage competition sought out proposals for the repurposing of 54 Jefferson that define a vision for the building as a public space.
Our jurors Reed Kroloff, Eva Franch i Gilabert, Stephen Zacks, and Alois Kronschlaeger will be spending the day viewing the entries and discussing their choices.
ArtPrize will be hosting an event that will take place earlier in the evening at the Hub "The Re-Imagined City: Eva Franch i Gilabert in Conversation with Reed Kroloff".
After that event we will be hosting a reception at 54 Jefferson where the jurors will announce the winners of the $10,000, $5,000 and $2,000 awards.

A special thank you to the Competition sponsors Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University, the Frey Foundation and The Wege Foundation.

The reception is being sponsored by Lott3Metz Architecture

An Ideas Competition

54 Jefferson, once home to the Grand Rapids Public Museum, has been closed to the public since 1994. It needs a purpose. It needs your idea.
