Good Morning my BEAUTIES!
Its my favorite time of the YEAR!!
(see how our day started yesterday??? with a gorgeous natural art...a rainbow)
What time is that you say?????
Its ARTPRIZE time!!
WHAT is ArtPrize???
SOOOO now that you know what I am talking about...let me show you
just a few of the things I was able to get to yesterday.
First of all..ArtPrize is a walking tour, meaning basically anywhere you walk in the city
you are going to see some sort of installment, sculpture or artwork.
The first things we usually run into are the sculptures.
I like this stone one of the doggies..
There is ALWAYS an installment in the Grand River..I am not sure what the message was on this one, but
there are all these flags in the middle of the river.
This lumbering giant fishing, was a folky fave of mine..made of branches and moss and rocks..you can't see
but his fishing line actually goes right into the river.
For me, artfully this was one of my favorite sculptures..
the water and the metal and the nature...it just spoke to me.
I loved it.
Then it was onto another artprize fave. He uses all recycled materials to create his sculptures
and its always different...the squirrel was so cute
This fun wood burning and paint of the last supper in a Picaso style was fun too.
I loved the colors and the shapes.
This winter scene blew me away...It was only an 8x10 size..but this is all mosaic glass.
tiny tiny little pieces of glass used to make this...the talent always astounds me.
Look at the gorgeous detail!
this large painting was a favorite of mine..Its such a whimsical thing that it just made me smile.
this looks like just a painting, but it is actually a collage..little bits of paper to make up the piece...
until you get up to it and see the brush strokes...I love impressionism..and how it forces your eyes to see..
and for today we will end with this cute little guy outside the DEVOS center..
I took so many more pictures and the plan as it always is, is to get down at LEAST 2-3 more times,
but you can never see it all...
If you can ever make it to Grand Rapids for ArtPrize I promise you will not be disappointed.
to see past ARTPRIZE posts you can go
I hope you enjoy the pictures..I can't wait to get back down there and see more.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
