If you have been following my blog, you realize that I had an almost foolproof plan to win $250,000 at this year's ArtPrize contest in Grand Rapids, MI. However, in spite of my (objectively speaking) brilliant idea, I didn't get any significant response from participating venues to display the work. How anybody could have read my proposal and not have instantly understood that I was going to create one of the great works of art the world has yet to see is beyond my comprehension, but then, great works of art often take decades after they are created for the public to appreciate them so I shouldn't be surprised that a mere proposal would have been instantly hailed. I'm still committed to making the piece but it will likely take longer than I expected to become a world famous artist. Oh well, on to the next plan.
