Remember when we said we wanted to showcase Grand Rapids and the beautiful state of Michigan in our lobby during ArtPrize this year? Meanwhile at the Shore by J.S. Edenburn adds to that motif quite well. Taken on 35mm film, these photographs of Michigan’s beautiful shoreline will make you wish summer wasn’t ending soon. From lighthouses to dune grass, the viewer will experience the true beauty that is Pure Michigan. ArtPrize draws in large crowds from all over the world, many of which, may not have ever experienced the Michigan shoreline. If this piece doesn’t make them want to take a side trip to the lake, we don’t know what will!
The competition runs from September 20 – October 8, 2017.
