Michigan Expats - News - See All News

"Cavalry, American Officers, 1921" by Chris LaPorte, 2010 Art Prize 1st Place Winner

Unfortunately, we were not able to make it back to Grand Rapids to check out Art Prize in person this year. Nonetheless, the competition intrigued and fascinated us from afar and we will have to make a better effort to make it home to experience Art Prize next year.

It is still a remarkable event and tremendous economic and public relations boost for the city of Grand Rapids and West Michigan drawing visitors, artists, and media coverage from around the world. More importantly, it has introduce thousands of individuals, especially children, to the wonders of art through a variety of mediums. Yes, some improvements can be made, but that is to be expected from this type of event as it continues to grow and mature.

Enjoy these final Art Prize links and please share your feedback and thoughts about Art Prize.
