Right now in my humble city of Grand Rapids there is a festival of epic proportions.
ArtPrize is the largest art prize in the WORLD and our downtown area is literally littered with creativity.
Now I don’t pretend to be an optimist so don’t think I am 100% for ArtPrize. There’s a huge flaw with public voting procedure (i think they’re should be a panel of judges who are actual artists) but it’s nice to have our city’s focus be art, especially since i am an artist and all.
And THIS year there is actually a lot of really good stuff.
Here are some of my favorites:
^these reminded me of the flying keys from harry potter :)
^ in my bookstore ;)
Of course… I know what people send in to artprize… i dont know why people do the things they do…
