Monroe Ave and Intersecting Streets

Jennifer Chiodini's avatar Jennifer Chiodini

This is my third ArtPrize. This time I have brought the eye down to the street level and created a crossword puzzle. The photographs for my 2012 entry will be taken from each unique street - Monroe Avenue is running North to South (as it shows in the photo) and the intersecting streets running East to West (as shown in the photo)...Michigan to Lyon to Pearl to Fulton and ending with Weathly. The photos are printed on 2x3" hardboard. The backdrop in which the tiles will rest on will be the City street map of Downtown Grand Rapids. The tiles will be mounted to my traditional wood slat. The crossword puzzle will lay over the top, incorporating the color from the map and the black and white letter tiles. This will separating the letters from the map but giving the viewers a hint of what they are viewing. Enjoy your stroll through the streets and finding the letters...Good luck...bring the kids they love Alphabet Photography. Jennifer
