It's about the ART!

I know, I've been yakking and gabbing about shoes, potato chips, my ugly suitcase, and it's really time to talk about ART, right? Well, Grand Rapids has been an important art city for quite a while. This 1969 Calder piece, La Grand Vitesse sits in Calder Park - right behind the City and County Admin Building. Compare it to the size of the adjacent tent and you'll get an idea how massive this piece is. I can't wait to see it. And I was just thinking, maybe out of the 1260 plus ArtPrize artists I'll meet another Calder, another Egon Shiele, another Kathe Kollwitz, another Kiki Smith, another . . . ? Stay tuned.
