On Sunday, October 1, The GAAH Press Club visited ArtPrize and each wrote a review of  a work of art that they found particularly interesting. The following is Avelycia O's review of an artwork.


At the Women's City Club, there was a sculpture made by Mark Rumsey. The title of his artwork is "The Sky is Not Falling." The paper forms into a wavy sky. The sounds of paper sound like rain. Also, the sculpture fills up the entire ceiling.

I think the sculpture was art because [of] how he put the paper in different positions and how he folded the paper. I like "The Sky is Not Falling" because [of] how he named the sculpture to fit how it looks.
