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 Donny's review of an artwork.


I went to go see "The Sky is Not Falling" in the Women's City Club. The artist is Mark Rumsey. The paper ceiling was made out of paper which were shaped like bows. The artist put strings [on them] so the paper could hang from the ceiling. The paper-shaped-like-bows were little but there were tons and they covered the ceiling. Also, I thought the artist took his time because it looked very difficult, and because most artists are creative.

I also went to the UICA museum and saw a "piece of art" that was tubes and it had plants floating [in water]. I did not think it was art because it looked simple and it did not inspire me (it's my own opinion). Also, it was kind of wierd. The name was "Nature Preserve," and the artist is Michele Brody.
