Yesterday I went to Grand Rapids to start the Map installation for ArtPrize 2013. I had reserved three days to complete the work, but I had so much help that we finished the 231-panel mounting in about four hours! Thanks to my helpers: Jim, Bob, Rick, Debbie, and Dylan!
I hope that any of you within reach of Grand Rapids will come to this event. Over 1500 artists are showing in 162 venues. The whole town buzzes with art, artists, art lovers, and art talk. It opens officially on Sept 18 and runs to October 6.
I'll be there opening night and for one visit yet to be determined. I'll be sure to let you know the details. My installation is at the Women's City Club, 254 East Fulton Street. More details at: http://www.artprize.org/jerry-gretzinger/2013/jerrys-map
