One of the highlights of today include working with Shawn Smith, whose work is on display at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. He creates sculptures that look like pixelated images. We also covered A LOT of the city and really tried to see as much as possible while we could. It was really great to talk with so many different artists and hear about how and why they made what they did. I enjoyed myself so much today, I even went back this evening for another round of viewing. I will probably be down again before the contest ends on October 9th.
For students who did not get a change to attend with us, I am offering extra credit points if you take your picture in front of your favorite piece and bring me the picture to hang on my All About ArtPrize bulletin board. So, go out there and have fun - it is for school after all, right? The due date on the extra points is October 10th.
