Today marks the premier of the third season of ArtPrize. Like any art form, a lot of bad art needs to be sifted through in order to find a few gems. It's worth it. Juli and I will be doing our best to explore the citywide art gallery and report back to our readers what we've seen, what we think you should see, and of course what wish we'd never seen. (Juli, I hope you read this so that you know what your assignment for the next two weeks is.)
Here are a few of our favorite pieces from the past two competitions:
|Young-Kim, Salt and Earth|
|David Spriggs - Vision|
|Beili Liu -Lure|
*There was great debate within the art community as to whether or not lay eyes should be allowed to "judge" art. It caused such a fuss that ArtPrize added a juried vote to the competition, i.e. an intelligent vote.
