“Code for the Grand River, Grand Rapids_09”
Earthwork Installation Series, Sept. 23 – Oct. 10, 2009
Deborah Adams Doering
Deborah’s installation proposal was juried into ArtPrize 2009, the international art exhibition
and competition taking place in Grand Rapids, MI from September 23 – October 10, 2009.
Her earthwork will contain over 200 of her “Codes,” eco-painted on the 500 x 100 foot
expanse of lawn in Ah-Nab-Awen Park, centrally located between the Grand River and
the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in downtown Grand Rapids.
The first installation will be on view from September 23 – October 1. On October 1,
the installation will be mowed, leaving a grassy expanse for a weekend wedding.
(If you missed the “wedding” episode, please go to www.deborahdoering.com then click
“News,” then “Link: WOOD TV8 video and article ArtPrize Entry Almost Derails Wedding”).
On October 4, a second installation will be painted, referencing the first installation
and the wedding event.
ArtPrize is a radical art competition. Awards will total $449,000, reportedly the world's largest
art prize. Part arts festival, part social experiment, this international art contest is decided
solely by public vote. Voters must register at an official ArtPrize Voter Registration Site in
Grand Rapids to vote.
If you, or anyone you know, are planning to be in Grand Rapids between Sept. 23 – Oct. 1,
please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you more details about how you
can register and vote.
Thank you for your interest in and support of Deborah’s art work.
