We visited Artprize in Grand Rapids, Michigan last weekend and what an experience to see all kinds of artwork that had been submitted.  This piece, done by Scribes Six, calligraphers from Michigan, was a collaborative work done on full-sized deerskin vellum to emulate the way monks created manuscripts centuries ago.  Called The Power of Words, " it will last for centuries, just as a Book of Hours has remained exquisite since its creation in the 13th century".
I will post more photos of other works we also saw.
