ArtPrize Spotlight 2012 – Lights In The Night [PHOTOS]

This past Friday I, along with thousands of others, took part in an interactive ArtPrize exhibit, unlike anything I've ever seen. "Lights In The Night", a piece put together by Mark Carpenter and Dan Johnson, featured thousands of paper sky lanterns being released from strategic points in downtown Grand Rapids. The result was incredible, so incredible in fact, that with less than 48 hours from the time the event took place until the voting ended, "Lights In The Night" was able to make it into the ArtPrize Top 10

‘Good Morning America’ Will Feature ArtPrize Thanks To West Michigan Native Ginger Zee

ArtPrize is a big deal to the Grand Rapids area, and it's about to get another publicity push from West Michigan's own Ginger Zee. Ginger is the weekend meteorologist on "Good Morning America", and is being inducted into the Rockford High School Hall Of Fame this weekend. Thing was, she wouldn't have been able to come generally speaking (because it's hard to take time off in the fast-paced world of news), so she decided to turn this into a working trip.  So, this weekend, she will be broadcasting the weather in Grand Rapids with ArtPrize as the backdrop.
