THE 2008 CANDIDATE is Samuel’s Historic Installation Piece of 28 mixed media works created prior to and inspired by the 2008 presidential elections. Just before the elections the works were exhibited just once in a San Francisco neighborhood gallery for a short window of time. The 28 works have been in storage since then. The Historic Installation Piece has been selected for exhibit at ArtPrize 2014 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
ArtPrize is an international art competition now in its fifth year. The free event has a global following intriguing to both the art world and the general public. Grand Rapids is transformed into a “Grand Gallery” as every inch of the once sleepy downtown becomes an active art fueled space where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what art is and why it matters from September 24, to October 12, 2014.
