Prospecto Music Festival http://michiganradio.org en This year try listening to ArtPrize http://michiganradio.org/post/year-try-listening-artprize <p>ArtPrize 2011 begins Wednesday afternoon in Grand Rapids. Sound and performing arts will play a bigger role in this year&rsquo;s contest. Music, ballet, and other performances are, after all, art. But there haven&rsquo;t been a lot of entries in the past.</p><p>The winner of the art competition gets $250,000 in prize money. Organizers claim it&rsquo;s the world&rsquo;s largest art prize.</p><p>This is the third annual ArtPrize. The third time I&rsquo;ve seen giant sculptures, breath-taking murals, funny and eye-opening drawings take over a three-mile zone in downtown.</p> Tue, 20 Sep 2011 21:04:37 +0000 Lindsey Smith 4231 at http://michiganradio.org This year try listening to ArtPrize
