A Union in Stress

It gives me the greatest pleasure to announce that the ArtPrize Selection Committee for the Amway Grand Plaza has determined to include me among the artists who will be showing their work at that venue.  The Amway Grand Plaza is at the very center of downtown Grand Rapids, putting it at the center of ArtPrize itself. The Grand Plaza is a luxury hotel part of Marriott Hotels.  It has existed as a historic landmark of downtown Grand Rapids for over a hundred years.and dominates the skyline of the city.  Located on the corner of Pearl and Monroe streets, it occupies an entire block of the city.  With the Pearl Street bridge being a vital connection across the Grand River which divides the city east from west, it would be difficult to see any of ArtPrize without passing by this prominent hotel.as it stands right across the river from the equally imposing Gerald R. Ford museum.  I am excited to once again to be showing my sculpture at this great event.  ArtPrize begins Sept. 21 and runs until Oct. 9.  For more information follow this link: ArtCompetition
