Two weeks ago Grand Rapids opened its doors to the worlds largest art exhibit and people from all around the country, and the world, came to show off their masterpieces. We are so lucky to have such an awesome event here in our back yard. Art Prize started a year after Brian and I got married and in its fourth year, it is always fun to go down and see all the cool art pieces. This year we took two separate trips with the boys downtown because their is just so much to see. Both days were absolutely gorgeous and we had a lot of fun exploring all the different types of art. Some pieces you wonder how it could be considered art, and others you are just blown away.

less than 5 minutes to make.
|These two Pandas were made all out of old tires.|
