ArtPrize Field Trips

Cultivate is proud to offer ArtPrize field trips designed to support students from Grand Rapids Public Schools, Wyoming Schools, Kentwood Schools, and schools across Michigan with the vibrant world of contemporary art.


These trips provide a unique opportunity for students to engage directly with ArtPrize exhibits, fostering creativity, critical thinking, and a deeper appreciation for artistic expression. Each field trip is thoughtfully curated to offer interactive learning experiences, including guided tours that highlight notable artworks and interactive workshops where students can explore their own creativity. With a focus on making art education accessible to all, Cultivate’s ArtPrize field trips aim to inspire the next generation of artists and art enthusiasts, enriching the educational journey of every participant.

This work is made possible by Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University, the Michigan Arts and Culture Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
