A single artist captivated both the public and art experts at this year’s ArtPrize competition.
For the first time, a single artist has won both the juried and public grand prizes at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids.
Born in Pakistan, Anila Quayyum Agha teaches art at the Herron School of Art and Design at Indiana University, in Indianapolis. Her work “intersections” consists of a six-foot cube, illuminated from within, projecting complex designs of light and shadow around a room. The effect envelops the room and all the people in it.
