...
The fun 'architectural fantasy' part of the design hollowed out the center of the building on the upper levels to create an outdoor cul-de-sac for residents to drive their cars to their garages by going up the former parking ramp next door and across the bridge that used to be over fulton. It created an interior courtyard. In that arrangement you could go to Meijer's, load up on groceries, drive back home to your condo by going up the parking ramp, over the bridge, around the courtyard, and into your garage to unload your groceries.
...

Huh. Guess a DT Meijer wasn't part of that plan.

Just in case anyone new happens to be reading this. It should be pretty easy to establish GRPD (and/or the other building) as A/P venues. Obviously the city would have editorial veto power over the design.

I was telling my dad and a friend that it really needs to be entered as a venue as we were coming up Commerce.

What a great Idea!!

Thanks. As some know, I am an A/P groupie (did my third volunteer shift tonight). Before it began I rode around visiting the installations going in. Helped a couple of out-of-towners with local info. And talked to several muralists who wanted to do something that would have a lasting impact. One wants to return next year (he was convinced he'd land in the top ten). May as well start the ball rolling now.

Who was the artist who did the mural on the side of the old Annheuser-Busch Icehouse? That was probably my favourite work from 2009's. I'd love to see that muralist return. That work looks like it's always been there.

Daan Hoekstra, and he's from Central Mexico, so I'm not sure when he'd be back up in GR.

Bumping for ease-of-finding purposes. 2012's venue submission deadline is coming right up.

Not here. :(

Edit: got a message from an assistant city manager.

I wanted to follow up to let you know that the GRPD building (interior and exterior) has been listed as possible venues for ArtPrize. Create!

José Reyna

Perhaps the walls are not up on the A/P site just yet.

Why don't you make this happen already? Find a muralist (the Pekich Park muralist maybe?), raise some money, get the approvals, done. :good:

Getting there, today's find is a bookmark. Several pages back I posted the info on the Pekich Park muralist (Furniture City). That was before A/P started. (y'know, international recognition, funding, Kickstarters, all that hoopla early autumn)
