GR Grand Architectural Snippets Volume 2

Dorothy Dorney's avatar Dorothy Dorney

The abundance of ornate sculptural architectural details on buildings downtown Grand Rapids compelled me to compose a sequel to my ARTPRIZE 2015 entry titled “GR Grand Architectural Snippets”. Volume Two, encapsulates numerous architectural elements that could not compositionally be included in the original. The Artwork pays homage to the city of Grand Rapids and its people for preserving the architectural gems that may go unnoticed; it truly makes downtown a special place to live and visit. Many of these uniquely crafted details often go unnoticed and under appreciated as people engage in their daily business downtown. Grand Rapids uniquely preserved architecture, which many other cities have chosen to tear down, and/or build new. The city is truly an Architectural Gallery Museum unlike any other. Beautiful artistically crafted architecture consisting of a wide range of period buildings. A city center uniquely its own, something to appreciate, gaze upon, study, and admire.
