Today we shipped out the DVD's of 'The ArtPrize Experience' to artists and sponsors, so now we're opening it up for purchase. I'm really excited about this, and I hope you are too.
The film costs $10 (plus 5 for shipping), not bad! I hope you'll buy a copy, I'm sure you'll enjoy it! The PayPal button is on the top right corner of the blog, and at the bottom of this blog post.
If you don't know what the film is yet, here's a summary!
ʻThe ArtPrize Experienceʼ is a documentary film about the 2010 ArtPrize Competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan. ArtPrize is the worldʼs largest arts competition, awarding over $450,000 is prize money to artists of any medium, and is decided by public vote. The annual event was founded in 2009. In its second year, Sam Klee followed four artists from West Michigan (Matthew Hutchinson, Debra Reid Jenkins, David Huang, Pete Fecteau) throughout the competition, covering their progress and learning their stories. From painting to Rubikʼs Cubes, the artists represent a wide variety in style and medium. They prove that art is not limited by material, but enhanced by variety. In addition to gaining the artistsʼ perspectives, the film attempts to grasp what lasting effect the competition has had on the city of Grand Rapids, and the arts community in general.
