Today’s GIF of the Day is an unplanned collaboration between artists Tom Moody, SeacrestCheadle and mrhealth. We’re on the road, so GIF commentary will be minimal. For now, we advise readers to simply enjoy the GIF.
We’re in New Orleans today checking out Prospect 3, so the commentary on this GIF is gonna be description. This here, is a GIF of bouncing spheres in water by Eva Papamargariti. It gets a mention because it looks like something drawn straight from Star Wars, and we like that.
I spent a few days in Grand Rapids looking at the juried and public prize finalists at ArtPrize. ArtPrize describes itself as a radically open, independently organized international art competition and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.Basically, it’s a city wide exhibition in which the public and a jury vote on their favorite art works. The top winner of the juried and public vote prize takes home $200,000. The top winner for category prizes takes home $20,000.
In case you’re wondering what I thought of the finalists, I spent a bit of time on TV talking about each of them. The winners, I haven’t weighed in on until now. A few thoughts:
