Full Eat & Drink ArtPrize 2010 coverage.


Mojo's Dueling Piano Bar & Restaurant is easy enough to find. It's located at the corner of Pearl and Monroe Street in downtown Grand Rapids. Moreover, it's the only place in town where you'll find two pianists fighting for approval and tinkling the ivory keys to perform the top 40 music bargoers enjoy most.

On the menu, Mojo's offers Queso Dip, Mojo Fries, Nachos, Chicken Quesadillas, Chips & Salsa and Buffalo Rolls. At the bar, patrons can order up any drink from well to topshelf they please, as well as from a selection of draught and bottled beer.

The ArtPrize you'll see

Nick Phillips' piece, "Guitar Legends," involves three oil paintings of visceral guitarists Tommy Iommi, Joe Satriani and Zakk Wylde.

"While keeping the standards high for art, in combining Rock and art I want everyone to feel comfortable and included in the art world," he said.

John Elizardo Jr.'s "World Domination" is a series of message-laden graffiti pieces. Elizardo Jr. considers himself an "urban cartoonist." His work conveys a playfulness while confronting serious issues.
