ArtPrize entry shows experiences, grief of caregivers


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An artist up for a juried award in the time-based category for ArtPrize 10 is hoping to send a heavy message with her entry.

Consequence by Brianna Lynn Hernandez Baurichter is part of a series of pieces dealing with the experiences of caregiving and grieving.

“As a caregiver, you’re in really emotional, stressful situations but there’s not really a good place to express what you’re feeling because someone else is entirely depending on you to support them and keep things together,” she said.

Consequence is an imaginary space for all the built-up frustrations and traumas of a caregiver to be released in a way that doesn’t hurt others.

The piece can be found at the Bend Gallery, located at 40 S Division Ave. in Grand Rapids.
