Last weekend, some of my friends and I headed over to downtown Grand Rapids for ArtPrize. ArtPrize is a citywide display of art pieces, ranging from classical paintings to contemporary collages. After visiting ArtPrize, spectators can go online and vote for their favorite works of art. After several weekends, winners are announced.

One of the great things about attending Hope is that Grand Rapids, is only about 30 minutes away from Holland. Being from Dallas, there are times when I miss living in a “big city” and Grand Rapids is a great option.

My friends and I really enjoyed visiting ArtPrize! There were so many awesome pieces of art. As an accounting major, I always enjoy seeing the creative work of other people. It reminds me that God has truly given each of us a unique gift and calling.

This week’s post is a short one, but don’t worry, I’ll be covering Hope Homecoming this weekend, so you’ll hear from me plenty!

Enjoy the pictures from Artprize!
