ArtPrize is an art competition created by Rick DeVos. Its Grand Rapids edition gives away prizes totaling more than a half million dollars annually, making it the largest total prize purse for art in the world. Winners are selected both by public vote and by a team of jurors.

Here are some highlights from ArtPrize Grand Rapids in 2014:


My top picks for 2014


ArtPrize 2014

Jason Ackman, Return To Me. A beautiful installation at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.

ArtPrize 2014

Nathan Lareau, Urban Tumbleweed, voted by the public as one of the top five time-based works. Nathan's display showed a video (above) of the contraption/creature (shown below) clanking down streets. A microphone captured the sound as the "tumbleweed" made its journey through town. Very simple. Very well executed. Brilliant.
