What a unique way to support the arts!!


Is that a real statue? Because if it is, that's really amazing. I can see the details on his face and on his jeans. Or is it a man acting like a statue?

Lisa-We love ArtPrize. Not only is it a cool way to support the arts, it really seems to generate a lot of excitement and enthusiasm in Grand Rapids each year. We've been to two of the three years they held it, and I hope we'll be able to go again next year.

Halley-The "statue" was part of a performance art piece. There was a regular statue on the scaffold (which you can see on the right of the top photo of the sequence). The "live statue" was to the left and occasionally changed positions-freaking out some spectators who didn't realize he was a real guy!
