    Grand Rapids Art, Galleries & Sculptures

    Grand Rapids is home to one of the nation's most influential colleges of art & design - so it's no wonder many local galleries specialize in West Michigan artists. Feast your eyes on the spectacular breadth and depth of visual arts throughout the city. Murals are hosted on many buildings throughout Grand Rapids and sculptures are around every corner.

    Outdoor Art

    Stroll the sidewalks of downtown Grand Rapids to see all kinds of art - starting with "La Grande Vitesse," the 42-ton, 32-foot high, bright-red sculpture by acclaimed artist Alexander Calder. The very first public art project partially funded by the National Endowment for the Art, the Calder (as it is commonly known) has become the symbol of Grand Rapids and its creative spirit. Take a walking tour of downtown's outdoor art.
