GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) - Some ArtPrize entries are more than meets the eye, they're intended to tell a story. Jill Wallace of Goodwill Industries joined eightWest to talk about a couple of exhibits that tie into the mission of Goodwill Industries.
Goodwill has two large ArtPrize exhibits this year. There will be a truck in the Calder Plaza as a Fifth-Third/Warner Norcross & Judd Venue that will tell the story of the donation cycle. It will be in a "video game" type setting with moving 3D elements. On one side the truck would have a donation being made, then processed and sold in a store, and the final element of a person getting a job. Goodwill wants people to see the impact their donations make, in a unique perspective.
There will also be an installation at the Harris Building on Division. Dinderbeck, a collective group of artists, have come up with the concept of an experiential art exhibit that helps people understand how Goodwill helps people with barriers to employment and makes the connection with the donated goods collection program.
