To launch its new arts portal Web site, the Arts Council of Greater Grand Rapids hosted an arts sampler party on March 11. The open-to-all event at the McKay Tower downtown, featured short performances and/or presentations by Opera Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids Art Museum, Grand Rapids Civic Theater and Grand Rapuds Symphony and others. DJs Todd Ernst and SuperDre kept the mood upbeat between performances. Shelley Irwin from WGVU emceed the event. The Web site is found at

Just for fun we asked some Grand Rapidians to respond to the question, What's YOUR Art? Here are the video responses.
