A “Startling” First Look — ArtPrize Spotlight 2013
Art Prize…..What an amazing opportunity to showcase Grand Rapids and countless works of art from all over the place. It’s been a boon to the entire West Michigan Area to say the very least.
Well…..imagine if you will, a mild mannered radio personality dislodged from his parking lot on a temporary basis walking in to work at 4:30 on a Monday morning. Might be a little tired from a busy weekend…..could use a little more caffeine and maybe a cookie to get things going at the beginning of the week. Walking across the street from the ramp…the quiet hum of a sleeping city waiting for the biggest festival all year to begin. Sure, there is a garbage man or two at work, and you can see some signs of life in the Plaza Towers as others begin to get up to get it going. There are a nice set of shrubs at eye level as you walk between the building and your parking lot….when BAM! this thing pops up out of the corner of your eye.
After the accelerated heartbeat stops, and you realize that you did not in fact mess your drawers……you get ready for the beginning of the week, and Art Prize like everyone else.
