GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The excitement is now building for ArtPrize Eight to see who the big winner will be at the end of the competition.
Last year's winner, Steve Loveless, joined WZZM 13 on the first day of 2016's event. He and his wife, Ann, won the public vote last year with "Northwood Awakening."
It attracted huge crowds at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.
Ann Loveless won in 2013 with her "Sleeping Bear Dune Lakeshore" piece. Starting this year, ArtPrize put a rule in place that bars artists from winning the grand prize more than once.
