ArtPrize 2013: Round 3

Final post for ArtPrize 2013. All of the pieces above are from Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Their curated ArtPrize exhibit for 2013 was “Shattered: Contemporary Sculpture in Glass.” The Gardens was one of my favorite venues this year (though I really love glass as a medium, so maybe I was a bit biased before I even walked through the door). This exhibit is on display until January 5, 2014, so if you missed it during ArtPrize, there’s still time to stop by and enjoy some beautiful works.

Backyard Surprise

Another surprise back-yard birding sighting this fall. Not the bird itself – we occasionally see yellow-shafted northern flickers in the yard – but the quantity of them. At one point I counted five in the yard at the same time! These birds has such a variety of markings. I love the light-blue eye lids and the yellow on their wings.
