Some apparent confusion among visitors to Michigan's annual ArtPrize competition led to one entry being dismantled.

About 27,000 beaded necklaces decorated a fence for Jeffrey Augustine Songco's "Revelry" at Calder Plaza in Grand Rapids.

The Grand Rapids Press reports Songco handed out thousands of additional strings of beads and invited people to wear them, share them or add them to the art installation.

Signs explained the artwork.

On Saturday, however, people began removing beads from the 200-foot long fence.

By evening, they mostly were gone.

GVSU's Fall Arts Festival continues its presentations.  Dr. Danny Phipps is in studio today to talk about tonight's music "Faculty Artist Gems”  recognizing GVSU Music Faculty Performances in the Community.
