at DeVos Place Convention Center
ArtPrize is an international art competition in Grand Rapids. This year the event opens on Wednesday, September 19th and runs through October 7, 2012. More than 1500 pieces of art will be on display, with confirmed entries from 56 countries and 45 states. The public will vote and the winner will receive the top prize of $200,000. There is also a juried prize of $100,000 with various other amounts awarded to artist in some mediums. The artist must find venues to show their work, which range from city parks to rooftops to museums and restaurants.
Lily’s artwork measures 5’ wide by 4’ high with mixed media painting and titled “Don’t Wait for Tomorrow.” The display will be at DeVos Place Convention Center. Her painting is intriguing interpretations of human struggles. She has a BFA degree with Chinese Art and MFA degree in Painting. She incorporated elements of painting in a philosophy “don’t waste your time and wait for tomorrow” in Chinese calligraphy with women figures in the painting. The contrasting background shows colorful expression to read a new East/West cross-cultural spirit.
