Jason Hackenwerth, Ecstasy of the Scarlett Empress at ArtPrize, 2009

1,262 artists participated, the public voted, and there you have it: ten meh-inspiring artworks by Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize Finalists. Competing for the grand prize of $250K, contestant work includes a stone Nessie, a picture of water, a moose, and an oversized, pun-titled table. According to the Detroit Free Press, the ten “splashy, attention-getting works” are contending for a “total purse of $449,000, the richest of any contemporary art competition in the world.”
