Grand Rapids Art Museum

The Grand Rapids Art Museum is currently closed but plans to reopen August 1, 2020.

The Art Museum's history extends back to 1910, but its current facility was erected in 2007. Newsweek magazine promptly named it one of the best buildings of the year: "This cool and modernist building ... is the first newly constructed ‘green' museum in the United States, designed to be LEED certified."

Situated on the edge of Rosa Parks Circle - downtown's community square - GRAM has become one of the city's iconic architectural landmarks. The works on display inside the building are just as impressive. Collections range from Renaissance to Modern Art, with a special focus on 19th and 20th century European and American art.

GRAM hosts a constant and varied rotation of visiting exhibits, from "Diana: A Celebration" to "Birds of America: Audubon Prints from Shelburne Museum" to "Robert Rauschenberg: Synapsis Shuffle." The museum also plays an integral role in the city's annual ArtPrize competition.

Regular events include:

  • GRAM on the Green. Thursday Nights at GRAM moves outside for the summer season, with free live music, dancing, games and more.
  • Drop-In Family Saturdays.  Every Saturday, GRAM offers special activities and programming for kids and their families.
  • Summer Art Camps. A series of programs designed for kids ages 5-12.
