ArtPrize is an open, independently organized international art competition which takes place for 19 days each fall in Grand Rapids, Michigan. More than five hundred thousand dollars in prizes are awarded each year, which include a $200,000 prize awarded entirely by public vote and another $200,000 prize awarded by a jury of art experts.
Puente will be showcasing "El Gigante," the newest addition to his Endangered Collection, inspired by the strength and endurance of these majestic creatures. The theme is interlaced with vibrant color play laid over rich undertones.
Puente will be in Grand Rapids in person from October 1-8 at Rockwell Republic to accompany his work.
