ArtPrize voting starts September 21, 2016!

Andee is a professional artist, muralist, consultant, and educator. Her goal is to engage community through art and she does so frequently through murals like her ArtPrize 8 entry at The Cottage Bar. The ArtPrize Community Mural  started a couple of months ago through social media where she asked residents in Grand Rapids to submit icons, ideas, and happenings which make Grand Rapids a great place to be. She took all of the ideas submitted, prepared the surface, and twisted all of them into one composition. Next, Andee scaled the design to the building. She invited the community to paint with her and visitors engaged in painting with Andee on site with a couple of rules and lots of creative freedom. She was thrilled to welcome local cultural icons Randy Finch, Ralston Bowles, and outsider artist REB. Andee then reinforced the design by going back over it with a clean black line, reminiscent of 1980s NYC artist Keith Haring, with the assistance of a Grand Rapids resident Jen Wimbush, Ralston Bowles and a few others. The finished piece includes an interactive video component highlighting the participants and the process and you can view it here. All can be viewed on the website and via social media.
