GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Each Saturday of ArtPrize, we are inviting artists, who have work on display outside the Gerald R. Ford Museum, to join us with more on their piece.
Curt Pieper, from Hamilton, joined us to talk about his three sculptures titled: "The Path"
He says it's a series of three sculptures that represent his interpretation of a spiritual voyage. The first sculpture is "Embrace". Pieper says when we are able to embrace our past experiences, we can find the wisdom to propel life forward.
The second sculpture is "Empower". This represents the moment when we are asked to bear witness to our dreams. We will be empowered by our struggles and our accomplishments.
Lastly, we come to the final sculpture called "Emerge." The past and present will lead us to the future of infinite possibilities. To be enlightened and free of all those things that once held us captive. The lower portion of the sculpture resembles a tree trunk to project the idea that we as human beings are rooted in the earth and our nurturance comes from that relationship.
