Just a couple of hours ago, I hung up my entry at Marinades Pizza Bistro in downtown Rockford for the kick-off of ArtCapsule 2011. My entry piece is photography on canvas, and is titled Wash, Rinse, Repeat. It is hanging on the west wall just inside the pizzeria.
This spin off from Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize is a wonderful showcase of Rockford-area artists. Sponsored by the Rockford Area Arts Commission, the event features artwork of various mediums throughout the quaint shops in downtown Rockford. Grab a brochure, tour the artwork and then vote for your favorite!
How Do I Vote?
As you stroll through our fair city to enjoy the artwork – remember to vote for your favorite pieces!
Ballot boxes are located August 1—5:
- A Charmed Life… Nail Salon
- Great Northern Trading Co.
- The Frame & Mat Shop
and throughout the city on Saturday, August 6 until 6pm.
It is a great lesson in art appreciation. This event runs in conjunction with the City of Rockford’s Taste of Rockford.
