Restaurants like JW Marriott Grand Rapids’ and Amway Grand Plaza Hotel’s new The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck made mixing seasoned dishes and savory delights an artform—very appropriate as the city hosted its seventh annual ArtPrize competition featuring more than 1,500 works across more than 160 downtown venues.
