Grand Rapids, View from the Wealthy Street Overpass

Rick Beerhorst's avatar Rick Beerhorst

I have been drawing and painting the city of Grand Rapids since 1986. Over the years my love and appreciation for the city as a dynamic and living entity has been reinforced by this practice. This year I am creating a long panoramic canvas measuring 30"x90" painted with the view looking north from the Wealthy Street Overpass. I am growing and evolving in as a person and in my artistic practice. Grand Rapids, my city, is growing and developing as well. This is happening in tandem. This painting is like a log in a visual journal at a specific episode in my journey.
