I am very excited to be participating in this year’s ArtPrize competition. ArtPrize is an art competition held in Grand Rapids, Michigan in September/October. Artists from all over the world come to participate, and the WHOLE CITY is FULL of art! It’s an amazing thing to behold. My artwork will be at 40 Monroe Center Street NW in Grand Rapids in what is called the Peck Building. It’s a nice old building with a lot of character, and you will be able to see my artwork in person.
My project is a set of posters and postcards that are inspired by vintage travel posters and postcards from the early 1900’s. Each card was designed by me, and all of the photographs were taken by me as well. Each design is unique, and I have created these specific cards just for ArtPrize. This project also has an online component wherein the cards gotten during ArtPrize are intended to be sent around the world by ArtPrize viewers and attendees. The recipient of the card is incouraged to log the destination of the card (where they live) on http://www.pageredford.com, and then I will create a map logging the travels of each card.
For less than a dollar, you can send a postcard anywhere in the world.
