Grand Rapids Sister Cities, Perugia - Italy

ArtPrize Visiting Artist, Nicola Renzi

Grand Rapids Sister Cities International is proud to co-host a Perugian ArtPrize artist in partnership with Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park (FMGSP).

Nicola Renzi returns to ArtPrize 2016 after exhibiting his work in ArtPrize 2011.

His textile work titled “Every Journey Begins Closely” is prominently displayed at the Gallery’s main entrance for the “Almost Home: Focus on Grand Rapids” exhibit at FMGSP through December 31, 2016.

In this exhibition, we see how the ordinary is transformed into the extraordinary!

We are very happy that Nicola was able to visit Grand Rapids this year, and look forward to many more artists from Perugia in future ArtPrize events.
