Art Prize in Grand Rapids
Art Prize that is, in Grand Rapids. It is billed as the biggest and most lucrative art competition in the world. Is it any wonder that 1,700 artists are here from all over the world to compete? The top prize is a quarter of a million dollars. Second prize is a mere $100,000. There are venues displaying these unique creations all over town--restaurants, hotels, museums of course, as well as bars, nightclubs, stores and more--even the B.O.B.--the Big Old Building which is behind Steam Pig in the photo. It's just so totally wild and crazy! It started September 22 and runs through October 10th. Join the fun. Vote for your favorites. It's the voters who decide who wins!
