GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Ripley's "Believe it or Not" is here in Grand Rapids shopping at ArtPrize.
Museum exhibit heads say it's an ideal time to shop for pieces for their museums all over the world. They've already attended the last several years of ArtPrize and purchased work.
They say they're looking for pieces that are made of recycled material, have lots of pieces to it, and stands out in the crowd.
"We have 14 pieces we've identified since we arrived yesterday," said Edward Meyer of Ripley's. "I'd say the piece we're most interested in is called 'Steam Baby' on display at The B.O.B.'"
ArtPrize pieces from years past are already on display at Ripley museums in South Carolina, and as far away as England and South Korea.
