Anyone around West Michigan knows what Art Prize is! If you don't, check it out here. It's an awesome public art competition that has artists pieces displayed all over the city of Grand Rapids Michigan. It's on the streets, in the buildings, ON the sides of buildings...everywhere!!! I wasn't so sure what was going to be so great about it last year when we went until we got there! It really is incredible. We ended up going back 3 times and still didn't see it all! The best part really is just taking it all in with no snobby "art experts" telling you what is and what isn't art, YOU decide! The public votes for the winner, period. The other fun thing is often the artist is there and you can talk to him or her about their piece. If you're anywhere around Grand Rapids from September 21-October 9 you really need to check it out!
