ArtPrize 2014: What’s Going On October 4

Scarlett Kanistanaux is working ArtPrize 2014 like she's running for office.

The Erie, Colo., sculptor has been in the first-floor lobby of 50 Monroe sharing about her 26-inch high, 26-inch deep, 51-inch tall dark fired clay piece titled "Quiet Mind" with the aplomb of an elementary school art teacher since ArtPrize Day One on Sept. 24.

The billboard artist-turned-sculptor, who's represented exclusively by Denver-based Pismo Fine Art Glass, has been readily meeting and greeting and not being discrete in discussing the largest ceramic sculpture she's ever done.

Today (Saturday, Oct. 4) is a big day for Kanistanaux and everyone else involved with ArtPrize as it enters the 11th day of its 19-day run in Grand Rapids. This is the last day of first-round public voting.
