With four of the 20 ArtPrize public vote finalists located at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, The Rapidian and GRTV went down after Why These Finalists: Part 2 to talk to people about the three discussed during the second night of analysis. We wanted to see what the public thought of the finalists as well as their own thoughts about the panelists' understanding of the work. 

Artwork reviewed includes "Hometown Hero," "Seasons" and "Rolling Down."

Votes for second round finalist are collected until Thursday night at 11:59 p.m., on the ArtPrize website or smartphone app. Voters must register and activate their registration within the ArtPrize boundaries to be able to vote.
