To me, ArtPrize gives people the best attributes of what art is, of course this is coming from a person trained in science not art. ArtPrize is fun, interactive, memory provoking, engaging, thought generating, awe inspiring, conversation starting, and joyful.
I wasn't able to attend last year so I was happy to see that the quality of the first shows is still evident. This year show brought back very happy memories of when Tom and I explored the first and second ArtPrize. This post about ArtPrize is a remembrance of my little family that is no more.
Then there is me. Like these three woman titled "Friends", I know of the fact that a cute, cuddly, little muffin top protruding over my jeans becomes a truck tire hanging over my waistband overnight. This fact does not fit the scientific theory that calories plus exercise determines weight. Like these "Friends" I keep challenging this crazy phenomena.
My friends who went to ArtPrize all had a different favorite horse in this stick horse exhibit. My favorite horse is the one struggling to get to its feet at the very end of the herd. My friends, in a conversation starting opinion, thought the down horse represented Izzy and I trying to climb out of grief and despair to run again in the water of life. I just liked that horse---LOL.
