The LiveWall System was used in a 2013 ArtPrize entry voted by the public into the Top 25 of the world’s largest art prize, held annually in Grand Rapids, Mich. The piece, Back to Eden by artist Dave MacKenzie, was a 130’ long x 11’ high living canvas containing over 2500 plants. MacKenzie will reenter ArtPrize this fall with a new living work of art outside the B.O.B.
