UICA Seeking Art For New Location

"Sit" by Richard Koenig

ArtPrize is still nearly 6 months away, but you don’t have to wait that long for a major art-infused event in Grand Rapids.  UICA (Urban Institute For Contemporary Arts) is preparing to move to their new home at Fulton and Division.  They are currently looking for art to display when they open. 

UICA was founded in 1977 and has grown into Michigan’s largest contemporary arts center.  UICA features independent and foreign films, ongoing exhibitions from local and international artists, educational programs for kids, and more.  You may have visited their current location during ArtPrize or peered through the windows of their future home to see Beili Liu’s “Lure/Wave”.   

UICA’s connection to ArtPrize goes even further.  Once UICA moves out of their current location, ArtPrize will move in and make it their new headquarters. 

UICA is seeking proposals for the first exhibition at their new location, which will feature 8,500 square feet of gallery space compared with just under 6,000 square feet at the current location.  Proposals are due by May 20.  Get started here to be a part of it.
