A former student and friend, Chris Brewer, is now studying at the University of St. Andrews. He posted an essay about Grand Rapids’ Art Prize on a St. Andrews’ blog, Transpositions. The article will acquaint you with a leading blog on the intersection of theology and the arts and also help you understand why Grand Rapids is one of the best cities in the world. We’re so tough that when Newsweek claimed we were dying, we shrugged it off and took out Newsweek. Don’t mess with us.
In unrelated news, not sure how to feel this weekend after the old Browns, complete with their “Art” memorial patches, pulled their own miracle drive against John Elway and the Broncos in the playoffs. Twenty years late and for the wrong city, that’s how I feel.
