Big prize for local painter...who dreams of destroying art

This painting by Ottawa's Colin Muir Dorward, called Labyrinthineon, was one of two runners-up in the RBC Canadian Painting Competition. It's an important national contest for emerging visual artists, with hundreds competing for a grand prize of $25,000 and two honourable mentions worth $15,000.

Colin isn't quite sure how he'll spend his winnings yet. But he spoke with Alan about one interesting possibility: a project he calls the Destroy Art Fund.
