GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - You won't have to wait until the next ArtPrize to see ArtPrize. The new "ArtPrize 2012: Encore!" exhibit is now on display at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.

It features 13 works of art from seven different ArtPrize venues. They are scattered throughout the museum's three floors. The pieces include paintings, sculptures, and are all marked with a small ArtPrize logo.

"We expect that it will become a new tradition," said GRAM Associate Curator Cindy Buckner. "We have gotten a lot of great feedback about i, and people seem to really respond to being able to appreciate ArtPrize beyond just the three weeks."

The pieces were chosen by GRAM curators and will be on display until ArtPrize 2013. A couple of them will likely stay permanently.

Some of the participating artists:

  • Joshua Best
  • Timothy Cleary
  • John DeHoog
  • Lucia Eames
  • Peter Halasz
  • Stephanie Henderson
  • Andrea Kowch
  • Armin Mersmann
  • Sky Pape
  • Jason Quigno
  • Filippo Tagliati
  • Carol Van Swol Prusa
  • Kumi Yamashita
