One of the many fabulous things about Grand Rapids, MI is ArtPrize.  If you're ever in town mid-September/ early October, it's something you won't want to miss.  Three square miles of the downtown area is brimming with art work from people all around the world, all free and accessible to the public.  And it's the public that determines who the winner of the $200,000 grand prize. 
 
Now, this is not your standard, stuffy art show.  Anyone can enter anything from traditional paintings, sketches and mosaics to paper airplane and Chinese lantern launches.  This year, inspired by the work of Global Love Letters, Mary Colborn will display "two giant love letters with thousands of others - written expressions of love, hope, gratitude and encouragement - hidden throughout the city of Grand Rapids for anyone to find."

Doesn't that sound fabulous?  Love letters hidden all over the city!  Imagine how fun it would be to come across one.  Imagine the encouragement and joy you could give by writing one! 
 
Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children.  ~ Ephesians 5:1
 
We have all experienced the love of God and are all called to share this love with others.  What an awesome opportunity this is for Christians to share God's love in a totally unthreatening way!  Just jot a little love note, send it to Mary and she'll take care of the rest.

  5. Thank you for sharing your September/October art festival here at "Tell me a Story." That is amazing how exhibits from all over the world are there, from professional art to simple paper airplanes. The love letter project is awesome. I know many will appreciate finding one of these precious letters.
