Many thanks to Paul Amenta

It goes without saying that I owe my gratitude to Paul Amenta who has invited me to participate in SiTE:LAB’s ArtPrize exhibition for the second year in a row. Here he is hard at work helping to construct Habitat. Many thanks, Paul! It has been a pleasure once again!

We are in the home stretch of completing Habitat and I could not have gotten this far without my number one assistant, my wife, Florencia Minniti. She has been ever so supportive and working extremely hard to facilitate the building out of the dioramas. Here she is in action.

2012 Sep GQ Matthew Power So You Think You Can Paint Page 5
Page 5.

Last year, Matthew Power was in Grand Rapids to write a story on ArtPrize for GQ Magazine. He spent a few weeks with us at SiTE:LAB, getting to know the organizers and artists and saw our reactions as the Top 10 artworks by popular vote were revealed. The article, So You Think You Can Paint, is not yet available to read online, but you can download a pdf version of it here.

The article caused quite a stir in Grand Rapids over its scrutiny of the DeVos family and its critical view of ArtPrize. NBC’s Wood 8 reporter, Crystal Hilliard stopped by SiTE:LAB to follow up with us about our reactions to the GQ article. See what we have to say here plus see my work in progress!
