who is going to win...!?!?!?

Grand Rapids decided to put on an art fair where people can come and view the art pieces, vote on which ones they like the best, and the top 10 winners will receive a prize!
Last night my sister and I decided to walk around downtown and view all these interesting sculptures and art pieces that all these different artists from all across the country have worked so hard on. Many of them were very intriguing and you could tell that a lot of time and energy was put into creating each piece of art. Even after 3 hours of walking around, we simply skimmed the surface! That just simply means another trip to see some more, right!? :) Here is a handful of the hundreds of different items on display.

This "Wonder Wagon" is crafted by a local artist family and they have decided to create a "Cowbell Band". They stand by their wagon and play on their cowbells. Pretty interesting.

Isn't this piece interesting? It is made to resemble a river bed with water ripples flowing around 3 larger rocks sticking out of the surface of the river. Those are not real rocks, but copper and aluminum formed rocks with the water ripples made out of glass.

Interesting looking art hanging in a window.

This is called the "Stone Family Circle"

This is suppose to be a rat painting on the easel, but I think the artist decided he needed to touch up his painting a little bit more.

A dragon head made out of metal

Cool Bike!

"I can see this hanging on your wall" said my sister. Isn't that really sweet? I thought so.

This is supposed to resemble a tidal wave. It is made out of 300 lbs of recycled beer bottles. The artist was dripping the hot glass over it as we were standing there.

Here is my lovely sister, Lenelle, in the blue shirt! She decided to add her own little touch to this piece of art, as you can see... the little boy in the red is in progress of doing the same thing! :)

This is a guy walking around on stilts with all kinds of stuff attached to him. Not sure what he is trying to look like.... a native from the jungle or something.

This is a really, really cool bench that would LOVE to have in my back yard!! It was so cool, I had to take a picture of the back of it so you could see a little bit of how it was created.

Last but not least, this one was made out of tile mosaics, except for the hand.

It was really interesting to see! I highly recommend it for others to go and view as well! Gives you a nice view of all the different forms of art available.
