From the Michigan getaway post, it seems as though there are a few Grand Rapids posters here. I am a GR native that lives on the East Side of the state now, but I can't wait for Art Prize. I love the energy in the city during this time.
My brother-in-law has an exhibit at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art (UICA). If you are in the area, please give him your vote. As with all the artists (I am sure), he has dedicated so much time to his entry and I am really excited for him and his great venue this year. His entry is called "Will You Still Need Me, Will You Still Feed Me." Here is a picture! All the figures are made out of Crayola crayons.
I'm so bitter that GR got cool right after I left. I'm taking it personally.
When did you leave? I grew up there and went to college there. I had a great childhood, but swore I would never go back. I ended up back there in 2003, lived right downtown and loved it. We moved again in 2006 and have been trying to find our way back ever since. It seems to get better and better.
