Grand Rapids ArtPrize 2011 in Full Swing
What do encyclopedia pages, twine, horsehair, firecrackers,
paper-cuts and aged bronze all have in common? ArtPrize 2011, of course.
We previewed a few of the ArtPrize 2011 installations at the Grand
Rapids Art Museum last Sunday and have included a few photos of the
diverse entries displayed.
This piece is made from steel and encyclopedia pages. I knew I shouldn’t
have got rid of that old set of World Books.
This unusual piece is made from twine. Ditto above statement.
Even bronze woman and I have a pose in common.
Many unusual materials were used to recreate this replica
of a war rug. Did you guess firecrackers?
Horsehair, grapevine, and a hand hewn wheel comprise
the elements of this entry.
The depth and intricacy of these paper sheets has to be seen to
be appreciated. I had difficulty with paper snowflakes!
Don’t miss ArtPrize 2011 this year! It started on Wed Sept 21
and runs through October 9th. These and about 1500 other pieces
that will stretch your imagination are waiting for you to view and vote.
