ArtPrize ... and the Fun Is Over

This year 1,715 artists from 21 countries exhibited.  450,000 votes by 31,014 registered voters were cast over a two week period.  I'm pleased that my entry, "The Lake", exhibited at DeVos Place got a lot of them to be ranked among the top 75 vote getter's.

Here are three YouTube videos taken by SteveKaterberg that present an overview of what ArtPrize was all about.  I especially like the bits of conversation by the viewers he included.  Enjoy!

Have you come back down to Earth yet Nellie? How thrilling to be part of such a wonderful event.

Congratulations! So wonderful to get to see your audience enjoying your work, talk with some of them and get their reactions. So often artists work in a vacuum and never know what the audience thinks and feels. What a wonderful experience for you.

I hate having missed this! I was sure I'd be able to come up, but it's not been a good three weeks for me. Anyway, I'm glad it was such a wonderful experience for you; top 75 is well deserved. Congratulations.
