If it sounds too good to be true.....

Another buyer beware tale, but this time it has a twist. A photographer stole other photographer's work and tried to pass it off as her own. This time she got caught. If you drill down to the archived posts - you can witness the lie expanding. It also should be pointed out that Tineye was used to crack this case - mentioned in my first couple blog posts. Tineye is now able to check against a database of 1.6 billion images. Click here for whole story

My ArtPrize Entries are now hanging in the Riverview Center at 678 Front Ave Grand Rapids, MI 49504. The best way to get to them is enter at the south entrance and go up to the second floor. There is an empty unfinished office space (huge - about 100' x 100') by the elevator hosting many artists. Last year Riverview Center was the second largest venue with sixty some artist...this year there are 77 artist in the venue. This is a prime place to view lots of art!
