ArtPrize starts in four days. Last Tuesday, my neighbor and I drove up to the venue to do the installation of "Art for All Ages." I couldn't use my car for the transport because the frame is about 5cm too big to fit. His car is a bit bigger.
The installation went very smoothly - math and a knowledge of proportion make drilling two holes in a wall a snap.
Next on the list are a couple of artist's receptions before opening day on September 21. Then 19 days after that the winners will be announced and I'll be rehanging my drawing back in the dining room.
If it ends up being more - that's nice. As far as I'm concerned, just having the chance to have 400,000 people view my drawing is prize enough for me.
ArtPrize attracts artists from around the world. It takes place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. The event begins on September 21 and concludes October 9.
My drawing, "Art for All Ages" (Vote code: 62744), will be on display at the JW Marriott Grand Rapids Hotel, 235 Louis Street NW, Grand Rapids, MI - viewing hours, Sunday - Saturday, 8:00AM to 12:00 midnight.
