This past Sunday I went to ArtPrize, which is an international annual art festival/competition in Grand Rapids.
I have to admit that I didn't want to be there though. It was a mandatory outing for this scholarship program that I'm in, but I'm kinda over field trips at this age. And I didn't appreciate that they chose a Sunday for this. For me, Sundays are supposed to be reflective and productive days spent in solitude, so I wasn't thrilled about having to lose a chunk of time for something I wasn't especially gung-ho about.
Long and short, I didn't want to be there, and for the little that we saw it was no cup of tea (we didn't even get to see the grand prize winner!). But it wasn't terrible. The weather was nice. The other students in my scholarship group are good-natured people. And it was my first time going, so at least now I can say that I've been. If you're interested in seeing the pics I took, check the link below.
Also, props to Rachel B. for sneaking this photo.
