As ArtPrize 2013 winds down, let’s take a look back at some of the most memorable entries of the first four years of ArtPrize.

There were thousands of entries during the first four years of ArtPrize and another 1,524 this year.

Here are some of the most memorable from 2009 – 2012.

Young Kim’s “salt & earth” (seen below) won the Curators’ Choice Award at the first ArtPrize in 2009. The piece was very powerful and popular.

Kim returned to ArtPrize in 2010 and took 8th place with a similar piece at GRAM called “salt & earth (garden for Patricia)”.

Beili Liu’s “Lure/Wave” took third place in 2010.

Liu’s piece was viewed from the sidewalk and street at UICA’s current location.

Mark Carpenter and Dan Johnson’s “Lights in the Night” took 5th place in 2012.

Was it “art”?  Debatable.

Was it dangerous?  A little.

Was it memorable?  Definitely.

Mike Simi’s “Mr. Weekend” was placed on the jurors’ shortlist in two separate categories in 2012: 3D and Time/Performance. The giant talking sock puppet drew a wide variety of reactions.

Fans can expect to see more from Simi in the future.
