Foto Friday - ArtPrize 2010 Winner Grand Rapids Michigan

ArtPrize 2010 winner Cavalry 1921 by Chris Porter

This is the ArtPrize 2010 entry that won the most public votes for first prize of $250,000.

It is a drawing called Cavalry 1921 that took the local artist, Chris Porter, over 800 hours

to complete.  Our photo does not do this artwork justice, it really should be seen in person

to appreciate the size and detail.  


You still have time to see it before it is gone.  It will be showing at the Grand Rapids Art

Museum until the end of the year.  This weekend at GRAM is "Centennial Celebration"

and entry fees are $1.00.  ArtPrize is over until next year, parking is back to normal,

and I'm sure the restaurants & bars will have room.  So go on down and check it out.

That is a drawing!?  Amazing!  It absolutely looks like an old photograph.  I can't even imagine the work!

Looks like an old-style photo. That's some amazing talent, worth over $300 an hour!
