On a more positive note, Artprize was a GENIUS idea. I actually saw downtown packed with people at 8 o’clock on a Thursday night. Jane Jacobs would be proud.

  1. Yes, yes, YES! I’ve been volunteering for AP for the last three months and it is amazing to see it all coming together so beautifully. I hope all the naysayers stepped out of their caves to witness the thousands of people, particularly families, who were out and about in GR Wednesday and Thursday nights – enjoying art, talking, socializing, discussing…not to mention spending money in our stores and restaurants!

    As someone who chronically thinks about getting the hell out of Michigan, even I was surprised at my immense pride for our city during this incredible event. Yaaaay ArtPrize!!!

  2. Amen! that’s awesome. There’s an artist who’s hanging out by his work at my internship, the riverview center…”our differences make us the same” is his piece and it’s really cool. I talked to another artist yesterday! It’s so fun, I don’t want it to end!
