ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
2018 Artist of the Year for Contemporary Religious Art: John Gutoskey for "Pulse Nightclub Elegy"
We are proud to introduce John Gutoskey as the 2018 Artist of the Year for Contemporary Religious Art for his work entitled “PULSE Nightclub: 49 Elegies.” His work honors each of the 49 people murdered in the shooting at the PULSE nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016. This Fall, it was on display at the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) during ArtPrize, the world's largest art competition in the world, and Gutoskey won the Two-Dimensional Juried Vote Award. Over the coming weeks, we'll share more about John Gutoskey and his creative practice.
