ArtPrize is a public art event in Grand Rapids, MI.
ArtPrize is a competition, but the voters are the public. Any place can be a venue, and the whole city becomes a gallery from September 18 through October 6, 2013. I will be showing at The B.O.B., 20 Monroe Ave NW / Grand Rapids, MI 49503.
I’m excited to be showing art in ArtPrize for the 3rd year. If you have never been to G.R. , I cannot recommend it highly enough. The town boasts over 15 breweries, a thriving art scene and spectacular restaurants. ARTPRIZE itself is an amazing achievement and has become a model for many cities as an example of how art can revitalize a city
My entry this year is a mosaic of John Robert Schrieffer, co-recipient of the 1972 Nobel Prize in Physics. This is the first in a series of mosaics titled “Rendered Obsolete” which is about scientists and engineers who are largely unknown but whose work has had profound impact on the lives of people in the world.
