Several posts back, I took a look at some of the ArtPrize pieces exhibited in the same space as Greg's. They were all wonderful pieces, but we wanted to see even more! So, it was time for a return visit to Grand Rapids and check out some art.
ArtPrize reminds me that the term "art" is subjective. One person's art is another person's construction.
One person's can love a piece, another can hate it.
One person's treasure is another person's trash.
The pieces at ArtPrize are as diverse as styles of art, artists, and visitors. Some are tall.
Others are wide.
But with great detail.
Other pieces, much smaller, like this inlaid table.
Some involve playing with sand...
Others are painted with sand.
Some move. (One of these statues is a living one.)
Some you CAN move.
Some are made of felt.
Some make you laugh.

Some are really big.
Others are really, really big!
Some are made from cardboard.
Others are quilted.
Some are embroidered.
And this one is made from lottery tickets.
70,000 lottery tickets.
everything was made from lotto tickets.
Every little bit.
Some used a little water...
Another is a water creature.
Some give you the eye.
Others give you an eyeful.
And some just cop out.
(This is only part of the exhibit -- but basically, I found the whole exhibit a cop out. Subjective, remember?)
Next post -- my favorite exhibits!
