Marking 100 years of service to the Grand Rapids metropolitan community in 2009, Western Michigan University is deeply committed to the fine arts, which naturally led us to participate in ArtPrize. The College of Fine Arts and Extended University Programs have partnered to include the WMU-Grand Rapids location (Cherry & Ionia) as an ArtPrize venue this year!
An integral part of the Grand Rapids landscape, WMU’s downtown location is just south of VanAndel Arena. The renovated 5-story historic building will feature the work of many artists, some of whom are WMU faculty, students and alumni of the Frostic School of Art, within 32 registered ArtPrize projects. The artists work has transformed Western Michigan
University's unique downtown 5th floor into a spectacular location full of fascinating and inspiring art.
With 50 other venues joining us in the Heartside neighborhood, be sure to add WMU-Grand Rapids on your ArtPrize tour list.
The public is invited to join us for a Venue Reception on Saturday, Sept 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. Please RSVP at: http://www.wmich.edu/grandrapids/artprize/
