ArtPrize Hub to Open SaturdaySeptember 16th, 2011 at 6:02 pm by Ryan Takeo under ArtPrize, Uncategorized
If you’re a voting nut, and want to hit the ground running Wednesday at 6 p.m. (when voting opens), you might as well.
You can show up at the NEW HUB at 41 Sheldon SE. Make sure to bring your I.D.
There you can see the old UICA revamped. Construction crews added some walls to what used to be mainly an open space.
There are some stark differences to the Hub this year. Namely: art.
Last year’s winner “Cavalry” is there. There are a couple other pieces I’ll detail in later blogs (teaser!).
At ArtPrize year one, there were ArtPrize entries there. Organizers didn’t want anyone to call them into question. Ya know, playing favorites.
Then last year, they did without art altogether. ArtPrize officials said some visitors left disappointed.
Most likely that won’t be the case this year. ‘Cavalry’ is as great as ever. There’s cool social media toys there again, too. And for the first time, the Hub — the headquarters of the event — has a legitimate home.
When: 9:00 a.m.-8:30 p.m., Saturday, September 17
