Renee by her painting for Art Prize which was hung at the WMCAT (West Michigan Center for Arts & Technology). It was a wonderful facility and I was happy to be a part of it all.
Helmut and Paul came to see my work in Grand Rapids, we had a lot of fun looking at all the work and talking about lots of art. Helmut really liked the sculpture below, it was made of aluminum and was about 9 feet high. I never did meet the artist on that one Dad or find out how it was made, sorry about that :) Maybe next time.
Mom, Carla, and Mike came to see me on the opening night. It was so nice to see such encouraging faces.
This was one of the works of art that was displayed at different locations around Grand Rapids. On the day Helmut and Paul came into town it was moved that morning to the Rosa Parks Circle so we had to go check it out. Believe me it was really wedged under that overhang, don't think we didn't test that out ;)
Mom and Carla really liked this sculpture which was made of all balloons! It was one of my favorites as well.
Janet and Mark came to see me and my work at the WMCAT. They are looking at a clay life-sized whale sculpture that was also in the WMCAT building.
Thank you all for coming to support me and my work during Art Prize, it really means a lot to me!
