Went downtown with Jenn, her parents and her brother and wandered around looking at Artprize stuff. Overall a much smaller showing this year than the last couple years.
Lots of people though, by the size of the crowd, you don't have to be a market research type to see that West Michigan needs more attractions and more to do. There were alot of people down there.
Some pictures below.
Paperclips - Not sure it's art, but it is an interesting decor idea. hundreds of paperclip strands with little bits of magazines wrapped around them. Could be interesting to try with comic books.
Performance Art - This guy had a large magnifying lens and was using it to focus the sun and burn/etch drawings into wood board. Neat.
Driftwood - Neat ocean themed driftwood sculpture/carving at the BOB
Praying Mantis - Look! A giant bug made out of metal!
Art at Dowtown Taco Boy "Gallery" - Even the fast food chains get in on the act with this bottle cap bridge creation.
Giant "Barrel full of monkeys" made of metal hanging from the bridge. - These are interesting.
I want to hear your
