ArtPrize Top Ten Announcement

Round one of voting is officially over, the top ten will be announced today!  And what great weather we have here in Michigan!  It's been cloudy, gloomy, and cold for most of ArtPrize (yet there were 440,000 votes!), but toady is sunny, mid 60's...perfect.

As for later, the top ten will be announced at Rosa Park Circle, 6:00 tonight.  The announcement will be accompanied by a concert from the band, Five For Fighting.  Can't wait to see them.

I'm not going to post a top ten prediction list...though I'm really rooting for David Huang! (my previous posts about David)

Before the top ten are announced, here are some pictures that I've taken over the last few days of ArtPrize.

On Sunday, we started out trip around GR at the YMCA.  Someone made a cow out of lots of little cows, pretty funny.

This is a quilt collection by Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood,  made out of ties from influential men from Grand Rapids.  

Cool shot of GR.

Next stop was, yet again, Kendall College.  I can't seem to take enough pictures of Roscoe Wilson's entry.

Next we went to the GRAM, and saw this top25 entry when we first walked in.

And another top25...very nice.

Another top25 at the GRAM.

Yet another 25 at the GRAM...did they get a monopoly?  Just kidding! It's a great venue.

So, by this point we had been walking around GR for hours, and we needed to get back home for the Colts football game.  We usually don't buy from the street vendors, but the smell of these Philly Cheesesteaks was irresistible!

My best sandwich in months!  

Kendall's cool sign, obscured by cars and trees.  Just stating the obvious.

Don't ya love these signs?
I'll be posting some photos from yesterday up shortly.  I need to finish editing David Huang's video.

More soon!
