Gangs Of Green City - Jeremiah Strickland - ArtPrize 2021 Video Introduction


After a long period of isolation, it’s time to get together and play! Gangs Of Green City is a cooperative board game experience. Instead of pitting players against each other, GOGC teams them against the game itself. Based on the same-named Part 2 of “Ship Of Theseus: A Novel” by Jeremiah Strickland, Gangs Of Green City: A Cooperative Superhero Boardgame Experience is immersive, meticulously detailed, and socially engaging. It features a diverse cast of characters, a richly detailed universe to explore, a multitude of illustrations, and an opportunity to bring people together for some much-needed fun. How can you go wrong with fun? In this introduction to GOGC, we learn about Green City and some of her colorful residents. You can find the GOGC installation as a part of ArtPrize 11 at the Center For Community Transformation in Grand Rapids, MI. September 16 - October 3, 2021.
ArtPrize® is an open, independently organized international art competition which takes place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It celebrates artists working in all mediums from anywhere in the world, and is open to any creative with an artwork to enter and a venue willing to host it. For 18 days, art is exhibited throughout the city in public parks and museums, in galleries and vacant storefronts, in bars and on bridges. ArtPrize awards $450,000 directly to artists, through grants to support their ambitious work and through prizes which the public decides through the ArtPrize website. Since its inception in 2009, millions have participated in ArtPrize, displaying their work, opening their spaces to artists and visitors from around the world, and sparking countless conversations about what art is and why it matters.
