Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize is not your typical art competition.

Sixteen-year-old Alesha Gustafson couldn’t wait to get out of the hospital. It was the week of the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) State Fair, and she had spent all summer looking forward to selling her hog at the auction. She had spent countless hours raising the pig and preparing for this week. She is a member of the “When Pigs Fly and Cows Jump over the Moon” 4-H club in Menominee County, Michigan, and the fair has always been the highlight of her summer. Unfortunately, Alesha didn’t know if she’d be able to make it to the fair this year—she had just gone through emergency surgery to have a portion of her intestines removed.
