$200,000 prize elevates quilt art to new heights

A landscape art quilt titled “Sleeping Bear Dune Lakeshore” recently won $200,000 as the top entry in ArtPrize, an annual competition in Grand Rapids, Mich. Its creator, Ann Loveless of Frankfort, Mich., was inspired by a photograph of the scenic area along Lake Michigan. Loveless has been making landscape quilts for 10 years, but this is her “most ambitious piece yet” and took 400 hours to complete, she says. The four panels measure 20 feet long and 5 feet high. Anyone can enter the yearly competition; this year, it featured 1,524 pieces of art by 1,805 artists from 47 countries. Check out the contest website at artprize.org.
