Love Thursday: More ArtPrize and the Queen Mother is Coming!

"Engulfed" in front of the GR Public Museum and across the Grand River from the Amway Grand Plaza. Ritch Branstrom assembled the components of this dirty water bird with auto parts, oil barrels, gas tanks and cylinders, and blown-out tires. The heron constructed from these petroleum-related materials evokes the potential loss of wildlife and species, as well as the possible obsolescence of our rich car culture and heritage.

This installation captures a school of Asian carp working their way up river. These invasive species pose a serious threat to the Great Lake ecosystems and native fish.

Reminisce by Jennifer Surine

...a visual representation of the process of accumulating and storing our memories ... conveys how sacred and precious each one is.
