I have always loved art, in its many forms. In the past few years, I’ve discovered this beautiful, inside-outside art show in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My sister MK lives close to GR . She told me about this revolutionary art competition toward the end of it’s first year.
It went so fast, however, I couldn’t get over in time. I missed it.
I made sure I didn’t miss the 2nd year. Or the 3rd. Now we’re on year #4.
So you don’t think you like art, much, but you know what you like when you see it, right? If you haven’t heard of ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan, you are missing out on a unique assemblage of art that runs almost 3 weeks in and around the city.
There’s art in the coffee shops, in the restaurants, in the library, in the museums, and in the courtyards. Murals on the sides of buildings, artwork in the river. Art is everywhere!
This statue caught my attention at last year’s ArtPrize. It spoke to me. Little me listening to bigger me about … life. Made me think…
Here are a few more photos of some creative artwork from last year’s ArtPrize.
If you want something fabulous to do in the next two weeks, go to the Grand Rapids ArtPrize event. It’s great art, it’s free, and it’s just stupendous! There is definitely something for everyone.
