Grand Rapids ArtPrize 2013

Last weekend I had the privilege of exploring Grand Rapids during ArtPrize.  For those of you who don’t know what ArtPrize is, it’s basically a ginormous art competition featuring pretty much any sort of medium all over the city.  Here’s the website.

It’s pretty neat.  It also brings in a ton of activity for Grand Rapids.  It felt like a huge city when we were there, the streets were absolutely packed.  Which is amazing to be apart of (besides the occasional claustrophobic moments).  Also, superb people watching.  Multicolored hair is trending right now in Grand Rapids for the teens.  Those crazy youths!  (I can say this because I’m about 4 months away from 30.)  I took some photographs of the things I liked best.

The circus also happened to be in town and there was a group of people outside protesting, which made me very happy.  If only the children attending knew what happened to the poor animals behind closed doors.  (That’s all I’m saying!)
