The unveiling of the Festival of the Arts poster and the designer behind it is an annual Grand Rapids tradition, and this year’s artist selection is a well-known figure in the community.
For 29 years, the annual UICA Holiday Artists Market has been helping shoppers find the perfect holiday gifts for everyone on their Christmas list.
Get in the holiday spirit or take flight with dragons this weekend in GR. You can also join the celebration of a 10-year-old favorite, attend a performance by contestants from one of the most popular reality TV shows and in classic Beer City fashion, learn about how some of the city’s favorite brews got their distinct flavors. This weekend is jam-packed with events you won’t want to miss.
Now that the ArtPrize crowds have gone and the dust has settled, the UICA opens its doors for the “Coming Home” exhibition, a show that features artists who have been touched by the mitten—be it habitation, education or otherwise.
