Paddy Johnson at Art Fag City has scooped me and blogged about the WEST PRIZE before I got a chance to. Thanks Paddy. Tell your artist friends to apply. It is free. I plan on sending as many people as I can to check out work on the "open to the public" site long before the winner is announced.
The picture above shows $125,000 in one-dollar-bills that we borrowed for our booth at the NEXT fair in Chicago last weekend to launch the prize and get the word out. Thanks to all of those generous souls who offered to "hang on to" the money for us until the winners are announced in October.
