I was thrilled to be able to go to ArtPrize for the first time last weekend. I’ve been really wanting to see the 3 square mile art competition, and had a fantastic, truly inspirational time in the midst of it’s final weekend.
I especially loved seeing so much art & craft collide all over downtown Grand Rapids. Many of my favorites were installations using non-traditional methods and materials (not surprisingly) and that had hints (or handfuls) of craft to them as well.
My favs below (and you’ll want to see all of them, click the more tag!)
