Remnants of ArtPrize

One of the unfortunate aspects of ArtPrize is that the crowds are so large it's difficult to snap photos. The three-week downtown display ended last Sunday, but here are a few pieces that haven't yet been taken down, none of which won prizes but all worthy of recognition. The huge mural at the bottom of this post (some 20 ft. long) is oil on canvass by Eric Lindbergh from Virginia Beach, VA. It shows trash, electrical wires and garbage cans on the right, the remainder depicting a boy painting a wonderful landscape filled with birds and animals. It should have won a big prize.
