GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - There is a new interactive way to bring thousands of people together and share their ArtPrize experiences this year.
The world’s largest art competition begins Wednesday and lasts until Oct. 6 in downtown Grand Rapids, with more than 1,500 pieces of art on display.
ArtPrize organizers want to see which art you saw, which artists and other visitors you met, all packed into a few seconds of video called One Second Epics.
More than 15,000 people downloaded the iPhone app for ArtPrize last year. Epic Videos and ArtPrize officials hope for another great turnout of people capturing and sharing their ArtPrize moments this year.
So here is what you do --
- Download the free, Grand Rapids-based Epic Events app, which is currently only available for iPhones
- -Use your iPhone to shoot a few seconds of video, which can be up to 10 seconds long; you can shoot several clips throughout the day
- Click Events
- Click the ArtPrize tab
- Contribute as many clips as you want but you have to be in downtown Grand Rapids to share them
- ArtPrize will share and compile One Second Epics, which will be released the following morning in the ArtPrize Daily section of the app and website -- a recap of the day before
24 Hour News 8 will show some of the clips on “Daybreak” and “24 Hour News 8 at 5.”
