Throughout all of Art Prize I will be broadcasting from the Huntington Bank Building, Monday-Friday from 10am-2pm! I'm also registering people to win a trip to New York City! I hope you'll stop by and visit me when you're downtown checking out all of the art. One of my favorite parts of ArtPrize is seeing all of the kids coming through and their reactions to the art.

ArtPrize Artist Party Tonight At WMCAT. “MetaPhorest” Mural Is Their Entry!

It's fun for me to be around my own kind.  We get each other.  Only within the last 15 years or so did I realize and begin to describe myself as an artist.  I've been one all my life.  I just thought I was different, and well, I am. But, it was much more than that.

About 10-15 years ago a General Manager told me me why he was hiring me.  He said I had one thing that the other 700+ candidates, some in major markets, others with as much or more talent than I had, did not have.  He said I was a "True Artist"; but he stretched out the "i" and made it into a long 'e."  Kind of how the French might say it!   Anyway, he saw that in me way before I did or at least I couldn't identify it.

Don’t Forget Grand Haven ArtWalk

Art Prize Grand Rapids is underway. If you've not been, plan on spending a lot of time. There are so many Art Prize entries, it is difficult to see all of them in a short period of time. Best of luck to all brave enough to compete.

For visitors looking to expand their Grand Rapids' ArtPrize experience, Grand Haven is the place to go.
Grand Haven ArtWalk takes place through October 8, and will showcase artistic efforts from the local area and beyond. There will be outdoor sculpture along the Grand River Waterfront, in Central Park, and in other locations around town.
