artprizelogoCongratulations to EVERYONE who participated in ArtPrize. Ran, Tracey & Corey, Eric, David, Bill, John, Sarah, Jason and Michael for their work and contributions to this great city on the grand. We all won big last night.

The Announcement Gala was all that and a box of chocolates. Felt like the Emmys. Thanks to Rick and Melissa DeVos for throwing a great afterglow party. From all of us on the Nessie Project, huge thanks to our friends, family and supporters. Your efforts put the big fish in the water and without your support she would not have swum.
Huge props to the Pickwick and friends for keeping the door open.

Round 2 voting ends at 11:59PM, EST tonight. Don’t forget to vote for the grand prize winner! Unfortunately the interest in the 2nd round of voting has been lax, but that means your vote counts now more than ever! Vote now at Artprize.org.

Thank you to the City of Grand Rapids for choosing us as a finalist in the top 10, and to all artists who joined this experiment in putting their hard work out there to be seen and judged. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are looking forward to next year!

Thank you to our friends, sponsors, supporters, and all who helped to make Nessie grow! We’ll post more Nessie videos as we’re able to go through our many tapes and edit! Your assistance along with our LONG 12, 13 hour days through weeks of blood, sweat and tears spent carving, gluing, sanding and painting made Nessie happen!
