Every fall, Grand Rapids has an international art contest called ArtPrize. This year is their third annual event and it's always really exciting to be a part of! Over 1500 entries filled the downtown area and it brought tens of thousands of people to the city to enjoy and appreciate art.
Last year, Josh and I went to ArtPrize after taking our "Up" pictures. We had about 20 balloons to get rid of, so we brought those with us and had a swell time giving them away to children :)
This year we went down (sans balloons) and had great time walking around, eating, dancing, and enjoying the entries.
An interesting entry.
After three years of being married to a photograher, I'm finally getting comfortable with posing and letting him take pictures of me. Most of the time.
Grand Rapids is a growing city and we love living so close to it. If you live in the area and have a couple of hours to spare this weekend, I would highly recommend making it downtown to check it out. We almost didn't make the time to go out and see ArtPrize ourselves this year, but I'm so glad we did!
