If you have never seen or heard of Grand Rapid's ArtPrize, it's a festival that covers 3 square miles of the city. Businesses and property owners within the perimeter are matched with a variety of artists and their art, including indoor and outdoor installations. The festival also features live events such as art walks, demonstrations and presentations. The biggest prize ArtPrize has to offer for me is bringing the Noah's Ark Series to Michigan and exhibiting in conjunction with my friend and fellow artist Kimberly Kelley Santini.
Santini and I will be exhibiting at MVP Metro Club. We plan to give an artist talk on the same night sometime in September. Kim is a Michigan resident and promised to lend this Floridian a sweater.
Stay tuned for more info to come.
