‘Wounded Warrior Dogs’ wins $200K Grand Prize in ArtPrize 2016 Public Vote

James Mellick’s “Wounded Warrior Dogs” captured the hearts of ArtPrize voters – and a $200,000 grand prize. The work, on display at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, is a series of six wood-carved dogs, all wounded or rehabilitated and representing wartime service. They circle a small coffin draped in an American flag.
