A local art gallery will host the Storefront Guy for a free workshop.

ArtRat Gallery will offer the workshop Storefront Mastery from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 24, at its studio, at 46 S. Division Ave. in Grand Rapids.

The free event will feature architect Jaime Izurieta — a.k.a the Storefront Guy — who will present  his Storefront Mastery program to participants. The program is offered in association with Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. (DGRI) and will help entrepreneurs and business owners develop the skills necessary to create an attractive and purposeful storefront display. 

The program will provide an overview of the tools and strategies needed to transform a storefront into an attractive display that interests shoppers. 

“The Storefront Mastery workshop is designed to help any business think creatively about how to use their storefront to showcase their products and services,” said Melvin Elede, operations manager, DGRI. “We’re optimistic that it will help create unique spaces that attract customers and promote vibrancy in downtown.”

Izurieta is an international architect with a background in urban planning and design. In 2018, he founded Storefront Mastery, a creative agency with the goal to help local organizations and small businesses create great customer experiences. 

Registration for the free event is here.
