30 Day Challenge – Day 17

Today’s Topic: An Art Piece

Since I love art in all forms I'm not going to choose just one piece to write about.  So what am I going to write about? 

A little thing called ArtPrize.

What is ArtPrize you ask?  Its only the biggest public art competition in the world!  And it happens right here in the city of yours truly!  Basically, anyone can enter a piece, anyplace can be the venue, and anyone can vote on the winner… and the winner just happens to win $250,000!  It runs from September 22 – October 10 so pieces are already being installed around the city. 

Now I am ashamed to say I didn’t take an official tour last year BUT I saw many of the pieces driving to and from the hospital. This year I’m hoping to rope a friend or two into taking a tour of the pieces and casting our votes!  I know of at least one person who has a piece submitted so I have to go out and show my support! 

If you are in the area or are looking for something fun to do on a weekend trip – consider checking it out!
