ArtPrize begins on Wednesday, September 18, but hundreds of ArtPrize fans are already enjoying this year's entries.

Model Kate Upton was among those enjoying ArtPrize over the weekend.

On Sunday, Upton posted a picture of John Andrews' entry "Monty, a dog gone dragon", which is on display at 171 Monroe Avenue NW.

Kate Upton was soon welcomed to ArtPrize via ArtPrize's official Twitter account.  She also called Grand Rapids "such a cute city".

Can't wait for the official start of ArtPrize on Wednesday!
