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.

Is ArtPrize’s Mr. Weekend Funny, Sad, Or Both? [Poll]

ArtPrize teaches us that the beauty of art is in the eye of the beholder.  So is the humor.

‘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.
