Best of Creston 2017

Grand Rapids, MI - On Saturday, August 19, 2017, Lions & Rabbits invites the community to take part in a ‘Paint by Numbers’ style mural, as part of the Creston Business District’s neighborhood celebration. The area has undergone a tremendous amount of growth during the past year, and its businesses are coming together for an all-day party.

Lions & Rabbits is hosting a mural fundraiser, allowing the community to come out and take a part in a stunning display of public art. The mural painting will take place in addition to the gallery’s ArtPrize exhibition, “Dream State” featuring international and local artists creating collaborative works within the space as well as pop-up performance by Vagabond Theater Company, Pink Sky, Carbon Stories, and DJ Crafty. Family classes will also be offered for clay mobile making, color theory, recycled costume making, yoga, and swing dancing.

The mural will be designed in a Paint by Numbers style with each space containing a designated donation amount. Additionally, Lions & Rabbits’ ArtPrize artists will be on hand selling works of art with all proceeds going directly to the artists.

“We are super pumped to have such incredible artists showing in our space during ArtPrize and for having the chance to create something igniting within the community,” said Hannah Berry, artist and owner of Lions & Rabbits.

Between Creston Brewery and Graydon’s Crossing, there will be live entertainment, outdoor beer tent, and kids activities during the celebration, as well as a number of ArtPrize venues for the public to check out.
