Over the weekend we took a cross-state jaunt over to Grand Rapids, Michigan to wander the streets of town in awe of the 17,000 pieces of art on display for their annual ARTPRIZE event. Artists from across the country submit their pieces of art for a huge event with a prize purse of $500,000 - the 1st prize take: $250,000. Amazing pieces of art surrounded us as we walked the streets amidst great people watching, cafes & restaurants.
We are planning to stay the night next time, both to see more of the town and the art.
A mere sampling of what we saw:
