ArtPrize 2016 is coming up and I will be presenting a large mural titled Everybody in Your Life. The mural will have imagery of West Michigan culture and I hope to add faces, people, things, activities from anyone who wants to add their voice to this artwork. Here's a rough sketch.

Why do artists enter ArtPrize every year? There's nothing quite like the exciting atmosphere of crowds of people talking about art and engaging in the experience of learning about art. People love art and ArtPrize is the ultimate Art-Lovers happening in West Michigan.
 
We enter every year to be a part of the action and to remind ourselves that we are not the only artists on the planet. There is intense competition for visibility and votes. There is also risk in putting ourselves out there for the critical backlash. As serious artists it is well worth the effort and the risk. We artists learn from the public's response and we learn from the entire ArtPrize experience. 

Selling the artwork is important for artists and we always hope to sell our entries or make connections for future work. Each year the results are different and several pieces can be seen around Grand Rapids where ArtPrize artwork has been permanently installed.

MI murals by local artists can be seen around Grand Rapids, Michigan. Jude's Barbershop in Eastown has a new mural by Anna Donahue Art.
"This is the most fun I've had painting murals! The grunge graffiti theme is new and interesting with all kinds of pop art imagery, expressionist detailing and graffiti lettering."
 The Grunge Graffiti style has all the elements of urban scrawl mixed with intricate classic design.The surfaces are prepped by painting rustic backgrounds from urban settings like old brick and stained concrete. Large scale imagery of pop idols, classic characters and legendary heroes are painted in a collage style with graffiti lettering everywhere. Silk Screen, Stencils, Pop Art, Realism, Surrealism, Fantasy, Anime, and just about any other category can be included in one of these entertaining murals.
