Ah-Nab-Awen Park

Outdoor

Ah-Nab-Awen Park is a long, narrow green space that runs along the west side of the Grand River. This park is adjacent to the Gerald R. Ford Museum and visible from the DeVos Convention Center (across the river). It is accessible by a pedestrian bridge that runs across the river as well as on-site parking. Another area of the park (not available for use for Artprize) houses three large, grassy mounds which were built in 1976 to symbolize Hopewell Indian burial mounds, which are native to the area. The park offers ample green space and a fantastic view of the Grand Rapids skyline.

A photo of [Fashion Has Heart]

[Fashion Has Heart]

The Corporal Hoffman Series pairs 5 wounded U.S. military veterans & active servicemen/women with an established artist/designer. Together the two parties collaborate to share that hero's story through the medium of art & graphic design. The result of their work is silkscreened onto a Threadless t-shirt to become a wearable work of art that carries a significant story. This [Fashion Has Heart] project also includes each of the 5 Heroes working with designers from Bates Footwear to custom-design their own military-inspired boot that aids to further tell their story through the medium of fashion. This project fills the void between the military world and the creative community. By bringing the two parties together to utilize the talents of the Artist in order to share the powerful story of the Hero, it serves as a celebration of our freedoms by the those who sacrificed for them & by those who benefit from them. Without their sacrifice, there is no freedom of fashion or art.
