To ArtPrize and back

Last month I installed my video sculpture “You Are looking for Something That No Longer Exists” at UICA (Urban Institute for Contemporary Art) in Grand Rapids, Michigan for the art extravaganza that is “ArtPrize”.    ArtPrize started a few years ago as a city wide art show with a huge purse and a public vote – think “American Idol” for visual art.  Without the annoying, mean guy.  So, there is A LOT of work- from museums to barber shops to coffee shops- some of its great, some of it’s…well.. not great.  The public gets to award part of the huge monetary prize and then jurors (Jerry Salz!) get to select other winners.  I didn’t win anything- but three people from my group show at UICA did and I was very proud to be in such great company at such a fantastic venue.
