Teen’s ArtPrize entry celebrates organ donation

WOTV 4 Women

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) A West Michigan teen is participating in ArtPrize with a unique entry. Eighteen-year-old Levi Faber was born with a condition that caused both his kidneys to be severely damaged. He underwent a kidney transplant when he was two years old, receiving the donated kidney from his own father.

Faber’s ArtPrize entry, “Donating Life,” consists of hundreds of wooden silhouettes, each representing a person who needs an organ, eye, or tissue donation.

Faber made his entry interactive. He fashioned tiny organs out of wood to fit into empty spaces in each silhouette. When a person registers to become an organ donation on the Gift of Life Foundation website, they can put an organ into one of the spaces needing a transplant. His goal by the end of ArtPrize is to have all the silhouettes filled.

Faber’s entry is number 62134. It will be on display at Fifth Third Bank at 111 Lyon NW in Grand Rapids. ArtPrize runs September 23 through October 11.
