ArtPrize 2012

Four of us went to Grand Rapids on Tuesday to view the top 10 entries in ArtPrize.  It was a perfect day.
It was sunny, 70 degrees, calm and beautiful.  We spent about 5 hours milling around the center of town.  My 92 year old mother went with us....such a trooper.....and she loved it!

Here are a few, not in the top 10, that caught my eye!

Stained Glass Carousel


These guys are so cool....all carved out of rock

This is made of bottle caps from pill bottles, deoderant tops, plastic soda caps, etc.
There were 1500 entries scattered about the city.  No way did we even begin to see a tenth of it.  The horses in the river are so cool.

Here is the link to the Top Ten..better than what I could do with my camera....enjoy.
