Show and Tell: GRAM Staff Selections from the Permanent Collection
May 19, 2018 – September 12, 2018
The Grand Rapids Art Museum employs over 60 individuals who work in a wide range of departments, from security and visitor services to education and facility management. Each staff member brings a different point of view to our organization and has a unique perspective on the artwork we display. For this exhibition, GRAM’s curatorial department asked staff members from across the museum to select works from the permanent collection that they felt a personal connection with. Selections might be by a staff member’s favorite artist, have a connection to a special memory, or be a tie to their cultural or ethnic background. Works on view will be accompanied by a label with information about each staff member and the reasons for their selection.
