SITE:LAB, the competition sponsor, is a non-profit that organizes art exhibits in changing locations across Grand Rapids. These projects are site-specific, each developed in response to a building’s history, neighborhood, architecture, and condition.  Since its founding in 2010 SiTE:LAB has done eight site-specific exhibitions using spaces as diverse as long-vacant downtown commercial buildings, a nature center, a medical office building and an abandoned natural history museum. SiTE:LAB was the recipient of the ArtPrize juried award for best venue in 2011 and 2012
