If you live in Michigan you should know by now what ArtPrize® is. The huge event and “social experiment” of Grand Rapids entrepreneur Rick DeVos, ArtPrize is in its Sophomore outing, showcasing art from all around the globe. I missed much of ArtPrize last year due to school and bad weather, but living downtown I wanted to soak up as much as possible.
1,713 Artists – 192 Venues – 19 Days
In a nutshell, ArtPrize is phenomenal and the level of energy and attention it has brought to Grand Rapids has been great. Even Kathy Lee gave us a shout-out on the Today Show… So for my next fun video project I wanted to utilize the “tilt-shift” effect that has become popular recently in both photography and video. I figured ArtPrize would be the perfect event to cover for the project.
I basically covered most of downtown, from as many vantage points as I could get access to. Rooftops, bridges, and parking garages were my primary shooting locations, and my focus was all of the action of ArtPrize below me. I tried to incorporate some of the most significant venues and some of my personal favorite pieces from around town.
Check out this video I put together and let us know what you think! Share with your friends!
