ArtPrize Profiles Show ArtPrize Diversity: Paul Nilsson & Herbert Migdoll

Paul Nilsson hasn't always had a career as an artist. After teaching High School Art and coaching Track & Field and Cross Country at Williamston High School for 36 years, Nilsson retired to begin his career as a Studio Artist. This year, Mr. Nilsson (no pun, intended. Well, maybe a little) is exhibiting his work in ArtPrize!

In contrast, Herbert Migdoll is a Chicago-based artist who has studied and exhibited art across the world for decades. Along the way, Migdoll's work has garnered numerous awards. Some of his art have even graced covers for magazines such as Time, Life, Horizon, Dance Magazine, and New York Times Magazine. Click here for a brief bio on Herbert and his work.

Just one of the great things about ArtPrize is that it allows a venue for artists from all walks of life, beliefs, and pasts to equally exhibit their art and voice their individual perspetives. Don't forget to check out their work along with all the other artists' highlighted here on our blog at DeVos Place during Art Prize. You may even be able to meet some and buy their work at Art Fair 2010.

ArtPrize 2010, an international art contest decided solely by public vote, officially begins Wednesday, September 22 and runs to Sunday, October 10.
