Last night’s announcement of the winner of ArtPrize provided a lot of excitement and fuel for debate.  Last night’s announcements also gave us another reason to head back out and see ArtPrize all over again.

ArtPrize announced this year’s juried and recognition awards.  These awards given out in multiple categories and are selected by art professionals.  They provide a different perspective of ArtPrize and all deserve a second look.

There are some pieces here I have seen and some I haven’t.  I’m going to try to see them all this weekend.  It seems there is always something new to discover.

What are your “can’t miss” entries that everyone should see?
