Siren of Michigani an art piece that Emily Hagen and I have created has been accepted and is currently being shown in this year's ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids Michigan.
Our piece is in the parlor room of The First United Methodist Church; the space is better than we imagined and we are so thankful to have such a great setting for our installation.
If you are able to travel to Grand Rapids September 19th - October 7th I would highly recommend it- there is an incredible variety and amount of art, and the viewing public has a real say in which pieces deserve a cash prize. It's a really amazing way to bring art to non-traditional venues, it is free and open to the public and any person can display their work. Votes for art pieces can only be made by people who have registered and have actually been in the ArtPrize area, which makes this whole process really democratic.
Come back soon to read a post see that details how Emily Hagen and I conceptualized and built "Siren of Michigani"!
