Remember when Dallas was going to host an expansion of ArtPrize?
The three-year agreement was set to begin in 2016, but ArtPrize Dallas was cancelled because of funding and some who "saw the concept as threatening to the status quo."
It seems Dallas is having second thoughts after introducing two ArtPrize-like sculptures made out of tires.
Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor whose work is known and has be shown worldwide. Frederik Meijer Gardens is home to Chihuly's "Gilded Champagne Gardens Chandelier" which has over 560 individual pieces of glass.
It takes Meijer Gardens two days to clean the glass chandelier.
Watch how they do it.
Let's face it. An "artist" I'm not. Draw? Not a chance. I have trouble drawing circles, let alone straight lines. Paint? A room, maybe, but not on a canvas. Sculpt? I did a wood sculpture in middle school once. It fell over.
It's final, now. More than 1,500 artists will take part in Art Prize 2012.
Organizers of the international art contest announced the number of artists and the 162 venues that will showcase their works.
