28th September 2013 - Art Prize

This weekend I went to Art Prize - The Art of ArtPrizing - Every year, artists from all over the world fill hundreds of venues all around the city -Grand rapids, with their artwork. The work of most of the Artists was stunning. Here are some of the Photographs I took of the artwork and the city.


This artwork is called Myth Or Logic. It is made of Bamboo pieces, suspended on lines. This was jaw dropping.





A chandelier in the Amway Hotel. Loved the way light shines in the night, each little lamp and each little glass piece throwing light in all directions. I clicked a few of them. This shot is one of the few.
















This is a sculpture of Einstien named - "Between Theorems" by Montana artist Jim Dolan. Created from welded steel and powder-coated in gold, this is an exemplary piece of artwork of one of the greatest scientists we've had till now. 

"Between Theorems" shows Professor Einstein throwing a frisbee, taking a moment for light-hearted joy amidst his important work.

This was in the exhibit for 2012 and now placed in Grand Rapids, Downtown. I loved it.





I've visited the Downtown several times and everytime I see a new face. The Grand river passing through the tall buildings and the clouds and sunset give it a pleasant look. 


This picture is of Downtown and the Grand river in the evening with another artwork called the - "Silk waves in the Grand" by AI & Laurie Roberts. These are the rapid waves of silk feathers that fly in the Grand River.



Lucky Dog by artist Ritch Branstrom
is made by 4 Cedar trees, a boat and license plates as siding which are re-recycled license plates of 1930s .

Wish we could get these kinds of things in shops. Would be a nice piece of garden decoration.











A tie collection that was started over 55 years ago, was the inspiration for Gravy Stains.  How creative people can get? You have no idea!
