ArtPrize 10 has taken down its canvasses and sculptures, but dozens of area students have an enduring record of the event: on their cellphones.
Mosaic Film Experience’s Mosaic Mobile provides West Michigan high school and college students with a platform to tell their unique stories in short films taken with their phones.
The fourth annual competition this year teamed with ArtPrize to offer the ArtPrize Film Challenge.
More than 100 Grand Rapids students participated in a workshop, at The ArtPrize Theater, to give them information and tools to tell a story and make a film with their mobile devices. Then small groups went out into the downtown ArtPrize area and to make their films in both stills and video.
We followed a group of students from Southwest Community Campus, of Grand Rapids Public Schools, as they experienced ArtPrize with their unique video visions.
