LITTLE is the ArtisTTable's first exhibition in a brick and mortar setting. It is an all media, juried international exhibition with an open theme. 2D, 3D and photography are welcome. We are titling this show LITTLE because we have limited the size of the art, but it is not necessarily what most would consider miniature. We are excited to have this exhibition in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a city that is often referred to as Calder City, because of the major Calder sculpture, La Grande Vitesse, in the city square. Grand Rapids has stepped on to the art world's stage in the last few years, in large part do to ArtPrize. Richard App has been a creative cutting edge influence in ArtPrize and the transformation of Grand Rapids into a Midwest art destination. This exhibition will continue the ArtisTTable tradition of celebrating art and artist's from around the world.
