As of last night, ArtPrize is in full swing! This is a very exciting time for Grand Rapids and for Visbeen Associates because David Lorenz, our senior designer, is an official ArtPrize artist. Three of his stellar watercolor renderings are featured at 2 East Fulton on the north side of the building. Titled "Potential Revealed," these pieces capture the vision for what the building at 2 East Fulton could be. After the Livingston Hotel burned down on this property back in 1924, this building was erected as the Davenport Institute and later was used as the Junior Achievement Building followed by roughly 15 years of vacancy. Now, Visbeen Associates is working together with Locus Development on the possibilities for this building to preserve the rich history of its past while encouraging the growth, culture and community of the future downtown Grand Rapids.
Here are a few photos of the actual piece, but please check it out in person and vote for David!
