Mark Rumsey: At Home and Further Afield

https://www.facebook.com/events/1706298506276106/

The Exhibition:
The project is a curated blind collaboration between artists from other places and artists that make their home here in Grand Rapids, MI, USA.

The Process:
I have invited artist from outside of GR send a digital image of the work that they wish to have executed for the exhibition.
A Grand Rapids based artist receives the image and a 12″ square wood panel. The GR artist determines how to best translate and execute the piece for the exhibition, a visual mash-up of ideas and mediums.

The Event:
The exhibition is April 9th at SiTE:LAB’s Rumsey Street Project as part of the Avenue for the Arts event, Art.Downtown.
