Four Venues You Need to Visit That You May Have Missed at ArtPrize Seven
ArtPrize Seven wraps up on Sunday, October 11.
As you head out for one last look this weekend, here are a few venues you may have missed.
Many trips to ArtPrize start with DeVos Place, Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum and Amway Grand Plaza. 14 of the 20 Public Vote finalists can be seen at those three venues.
UICA, SiTE:LAB and Kendall College should all be included on any ArtPrize visitor's list of where to go.
Here are four other venues that don't always see as much attention during ArtPrize, but they are all worth a visit.
- It's odd to think about Meijer Gardens being overlooked when it comes to local art, but that's exactly what happens when it comes to ArtPrize simply because of its location. Meijer Gardens has 25 entries all featuring work done with either ceramic or stoneware. Don't miss Kunihiro Akinaga’s “Mimesis” which is on the Jurors’ Shortlist for 3-D work.
- "Something Old Something New" by Lisa Williamson is on the Jurors' Shortlist, but there are other entries worth seeing too. Sixth Street Bridge Park and Boardwalk Condos are both nearby and offer a lot for ArtPrize visitors.
- Processing Fiber at 250 Monroe was a surprise on the Jurors' Shortlist for Outstanding Venue, but the nomination is well-deserved. The venue displays both traditional and nontraditional fiber art including embroidery, felting, knitting, crochet, and weaving.
- In 2012, (106) Gallery made the Jurors’ Shortlist for Best Venue. The small venue is once again worth a stop.
