Our seven Final 40 favorites reflecting religious imagination from #ArtPrize2017

“Flint” by Ti-Rock Moore at Fountain Street Church (New Orleans, LA)
Why vote in ArtPrize Nine? You help decide which forty artist entries will share in $500,000 in prizes including the $200,000 Public Vote Grand Prize. What's the catch? You have to register to vote in Grand Rapids but then you can vote from anywhere in the world. We are voting from Indianapolis but only after registering last week in Grand Rapids. On behalf of Alpha Omega Arts, we've posted the finalists we think spark new conversations about the religious imagination. They are images that grabbed our spiritual attention, and sparked our own conversations. Round 2 Voting for the ArtPrize Nine Final 40 will run through Thursday, October 5 at 11:59 p.m.
