Artprize & Dan Johnson Photography!

Greetings Friends and family,

Jodi and I are eager to let everyone know that we have an entry in Artprize 2010!  Our entry was created to bring exposure to a great organization in West Michigan called the Caregiver Resource Network (CRN).  The CRN exists to help people who are caring for others.  It’s really pretty cool.  Of course, we would love for you to see it and vote for it if you’d like.  So here are the details:

TITLE OF ENTRY:  “Don’t Walk the Caregiver Path Alone”
VENUE:  Bar Divani, 15 Ionia Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.  Click here for a map.  (Just behind the VanAndel Arena.)

Here is just a small sampling of the more than 20 hand wrapped canvas prints that are part of the entry:
