Hello, Heroes! Today I am taking the younger boys to the city of Grand Rapids to see some of ArtPrize, an amazing art competition that was begun here 3 years ago. Essentially, the public gets to vote for the artwork and choose the winner. This is offensive to some, as they don’t believe the public can choose quality work. That’s okay. There’s a juried section of the show as well, and this is something that makes art more accessible to my kids and could someday be an opportunity for them to show off their own creation. With $450,000 in prizes, it’s a pretty big deal. So we’re getting some culture today! Throw in the fresh air and sunshine, and we’ve got a 3-fer. Yay!
