Default Silhouettes of gunmen atop UICA sparks ArtPrize entry controversy

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – An artist’s exhibit atop a downtown Grand Rapids building started causing controversy in the days leading up to ArtPrize.

The silhouettes of what appear to depict soldiers – some with guns – were placed on top of the UICA building this week. The owner of the building is CWD.


Artist Henry Brimmer, East Lansing, Mich.

FOX 17 News has learned the artist behind the exhibit is Henry Brimmer of East Lansing.

A tweet from Marty Brooks, a nearby resident said, “Nothing like waking up in the morning and looking out your window to see an outline of a sniper.”

FOX 17 News will have much more on this story Thursday night starting on FOX 17 News at 4 p.m. We also stream our newscasts until 7 p.m.

ArtPrize begins September 24th.

I should do that on our building. Deer hunting rednecks here would get a kick out of it.

I would have used naked mannequins holding air soft guns.
