ArtPrize 2010 Day Fourteen

Look at me! It's Starr Fish reflected in part of Steven Baibak's Mastadon Vanitas

Oh, hello there. How was your day? It's been another non-stop day for me. So much to do, so much! I'm digging the fact that I'm finally able to sit still in my cozy clothes and I get to put together today's ArtPrize round up for you. It's been one of my favorite things to do lately. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am.

I had a request to photograph a certain piece over at GVSU's Pew Campus - they've got a swarm of outdoor art and sculpture. Most of what I've been showing you has been indoors, so I thought I'd head over there while I still had some good light. It was a beautiful fall day today and the sunlight when I was visiting these pieces was delicious! The whole visit actually was a feast for the senses, a passing train was my soundtrack. The air was crisp smelling and the sunlight was fading, yet still a touch warm. All I needed was a yummy snack!

Tomorrow is our last day for voting. Is there a certain piece you'd like to see me cover in tomorrow's post? I'm probably going to see about visiting my top pieces, but I'd like to hear about yours. Leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do! Thanks for stopping by!

@RTL the Death of Venus is actually smaller in person than I thought it would be when I saw other pictures. Also it is elevated about 6 or 7 feet off the ground. I wasn't sure I'd like it - skull and all, but it's an interesting interpretation of Birth of Venus.

I'm not sure if it's the red or the shiny or the skull--but it kind of creeping me out. But I'm not a fan of skulls.

Haven't met many who are. LOL
Fact is. Everybody's got one. Venus is like beauty and grotesque personified. It speaks to me. lol
