It's Here...ArtPrize 2011

September 21 through October 9 in Grand Rapids.

This is the third year for ArtPrize.  It has become an unexpected phenomenon.  Part art festival, part social experiment, part civic project, the event overtakes the entire city bringing visitors in the hundreds of thousands.  There are over 1500 entries this year.  The winner is decided solely by public vote.

Maggie, my Mother, and I are planning on attending next Tuesday.  Its perfect weather to wander downtown Grand Rapids and check out the venues.  We'll probably hit The B.O.B., the Grand Rapids Public Museum and DeVos Place and whatever we find in between.  We will stop somewhere for a little cocktail and a few munchies or whatever.  I can't wait.

For more information, visit .  Also follow along to watch the top 10 evolve.  I'll be sure to take pictures of my favorites and share with all of you.
