Midwest Mondays: Flood’s a’comin!!!


Gahhhh!!! It’s almost here, and this year’s event has us even more excited than normal. This will be the 3rd consecutive year we’ve shut down the brick avenue in front of our shop to create a day filled with street art and free family fun, and this time, we get to be the ones kicking off the ArtPrize enthusiasm! We supply the chalk while artists of every age do the rest, filling our street with their bright-colored creativity. There is so much freedom – you never know what you may encounter as you stroll, taking in the designs scattered everywhere you look at Chalk Flood.

We are thrilled to be welcoming some new partners this year to the event who will bring a new dynamic to the event through their products and purposeful causes. You will find fair trade jewelry and gifts made by rescued or at-risk women from Women at Risk International, an art cart from Freshly Squeezed, handmade soap from Fish Hill Soap Works, in addition to many other local shops and organizations!

Family entertainment and kid activities will be provided by The Grand Rapids Drive, 616 Development, Grand Rapids Art Museum, Grand Rapids Children’s Museum, Grand Rapid’s Library and R-Athletics.
