ArtPrize 2014: What’s Going On October 4

Scarlett Kanistanaux is working ArtPrize 2014 like she's running for office.

The Erie, Colo., sculptor has been in the first-floor lobby of 50 Monroe sharing about her 26-inch high, 26-inch deep, 51-inch tall dark fired clay piece titled "Quiet Mind" with the aplomb of an elementary school art teacher since ArtPrize Day One on Sept. 24.
