SEPTEMBER 18 - OCTOBER 6, 2013
GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN
"Silkwaves in the Grand" will be one of the largest art works ever entered since ArtPrize began in 2009. It was chosen as one of only two art works to be displayed in the Grand River, which runs through the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. Silk feather flags reaching over 2 stories high into the sky, in a rainbow of color will span the distance between the Blue Bridge and the Pearl Street Bridge, a distance of over 525 feet. Visually captivating and entertaining as they perform throughout the day...touched by the magic of the wind.
