#TBT to Rumsey Street during #ArtPrize9, where Sofía Ramírez Hernández displayed three years of her daily drawing practice alongside Cultura Collective. Her daily drawings ranged from self-portraits to humorous quotes, from fantastical cartoons to confessional text.
Angie Ditmar, VP Spectrum Health Cancer Program, unveils the @hennacrownsofcourage @artprize installation inside the Spectrum Health Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion. We are so happy to have the work of art in our facility!
Seitu Jones, winner of the juried $200,000 award, created a half-mile-long dinner table and hosted the Heartside Community Meal during #ArtPrize9.

This project received a $2,000 Seed Grant before the event, which helped bring the Heartside Community Meal to life. The deadline for both Artist Registration and Seed Grant applications is Thursday, June 7. Register and apply today! artprize.org/for-artists ⠀

To say I’m excited about my host venue at The BOB @bigoldbuilding for #artprize10 would be an understatement. @artprize is one of the largest international art exhibitions. I am honored to be able to do what I love and have such great opportunities right in my back yard of Grand Rapids, MI.
This is my two large resin art panels installed @craftrevivaljewelers from #artprize9
Stay tuned for something big coming!
What will people say when they are not sure who is listening? Nina Caruso and Christopher Schneider explored that idea in their installation at Vandenberg Center during #ArtPrize9.⠀

Chris Vitiello's poems from his installation "The Language is Asleep" at @grartmuseum continue to drift in and out long after the finish of #ArtPrize9. We've loved seeing all the ways they reappear and take new form, including this one from @itispitt

I want to thank all of the special women out there that have been a part of my life, especially those who have inspired and motivated me along the way. From the special teachers, family, friends, mothers of friends, to the incredible group of women of Henna Crowns of Courage and especially to my love @gypsylife_traveler for all that she does for her community and the incredible goals she's crushed over the last two years- I'm so proud of you and your hard work. I'm extremely grateful for the influences and guidance they've given me throughout my life. To say that we celebrate a day for women is foolish we need to appreciate and celebrate the women in our lives every day. #artprize9#grandrapids#hennacrownsofcourage @hennacrownsofcourage #artists
#TBT to this blast of girl power from the Creative Youth Center. Girls Own is a collaborative piece created by girls at the CYC. It is a collection that empowers them to redefine girlhood by their own standards and show the world how awesome it is to be a girl. ⠀
Girls Own was an entry for #ArtPrize9 Creative Youth Award, the award will be returning this year to #ArtPrize10. #CYA#GrandRapids#GirlPower
With 200 gallons of sifted earth, and 200 hours of careful labor, Rena Detrixhe created the Red Dirt Rug during #ArtPrize9. ⠀
"A rug is an object of luxury, a symbol of wealth and power. It is also an article of beauty and cultural significance and the result of many hours of careful labor. Through this form, I address the tension between nature and human impact and suggest the ubiquitousness and preciousness of the earth just below our feet." ⠀

#TBT to #ArtPrize9 when A+J Art+Design filled the Grand River with their #SOSswimmers to bring remembrance to all the rivers and seas that people have crossed for millennia in search of shelter, freedom, prosperity and safety. ⠀
