if you have any connection to grand rapids, michigan, you’ve probably heard about one of this year’s artprize entries- “lights in the night”…. thousands of chinese lanterns floating over the city. when we arrived an hour early, the bridges and riversides were already full of people. i heard rumor of 20,000 people there to send a similar number of lanterns to float over the city. some people may put down the midwest, but i have to say, we’re doing some pretty sweet stuff!
i wouldn’t have expected it, but the event was moving and truly magical. the pictures just don’t do it justice.
