On Sunday, October 1, The GAAH Press Club visited ArtPrize and each wrote a review of a work of art that they found particularly interesting. The following is Donny's review of an artwork.
I went to go see "The Sky is Not Falling" in the Women's City Club. The artist is Mark Rumsey. The paper ceiling was made out of paper which were shaped like bows. The artist put strings [on them] so the paper could hang from the ceiling. The paper-shaped-like-bows were little but there were tons and they covered the ceiling. Also, I thought the artist took his time because it looked very difficult, and because most artists are creative.
I also went to the UICA museum and saw a "piece of art" that was tubes and it had plants floating [in water]. I did not think it was art because it looked simple and it did not inspire me (it's my own opinion). Also, it was kind of wierd. The name was "Nature Preserve," and the artist is Michele Brody.
The Andy Angelo Press Club, a program of Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities and the GR Creative Youth Center, provides youth in the Grandville Avenue neighborhood with the opportunity to find, develop and share their creative voices and improve their writing skills in a real-world setting while also exploring and experiencing events, cultural institutions, and a variety of other activities in West Michigan. Being a member of the Press Club not only empowers youth by helping them develop their sense of self, but it encourages them to become creative problem solvers, enhances their communication and writing skills, and increases their chances of continuing higher education. The Press Club is also an avenue for raising awareness about local events and happenings that are important to actual members of the local community.
