The World’s Largest ArtPrize commences this morning in Downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.
As the leaves begin to fall & summer’s glory fades, over 3 weeks in late September the entire city, every street corner, city building, & alleyway evolves into the most amazing & awe-inspiring place on Earth.
Artists from every corner the planet’s 7 continents descend up on Grand Rapids & Michigan’s GoldCoast for the chance at $560,000 & the rights to Grand Champion 2014.
Voting upon the winner are 100,000s of public spectators & a select panel of Earth’s foremost minds on Art – Together venturing from city center, to riverside & skyscraper rooftop, braving crowds – Sharing their voice in the conversation about what is art & why does it matters – A conversation with the art elite that has become unorthodox, highly disruptive, entirely controversial & undeniably intriguing.
In any event, art does matter & it is alive. In Grand Rapids, Michigan. The epicenter of the Art World for the next 3wks. Now… Onto enjoy the festivities, a few cold drinks, dancing, the sights, sounds & energy of opening ceremonies!!
