Art in the Urban Environment: Downtown Walking Tour
August 11, 2019, 1:30 PM-3:30 PM
Join GRAM for a downtown walking tour in honor of the exhibition, Maya Lin: Flow. Participants will meet on the front steps of GRAM with an experienced and knowledge guide. The tour will begin by exploring Maya Lin’s sculpture, Ecliptic, at Rosa Parks Circle to discover the connection to forms of water in the environment. The guided tour will then move to other outdoor art sculptures in downtown Grand Rapids to discover the hidden stories and secrets behind many known and lesser known works of art, including how they came to occupy these outdoor urban spaces. The tour will conclude back at GRAM by 12pm, and participants are welcome to enter the museum to view the Maya Lin exhibition as well as all other exhibitions at GRAM.
