A 21st Century Information and Interactive Space
Grand Rapids | West Michigan
The location of the Grand Rapids Art Museum, at the heart of downtown with the beautiful urban park Ecliptic at Rosa Parks Circle by the renowned artist Maya Lin at its doorstep, provides the opportunity to truly fulfill GRAM’s mission of being a welcome and inclusive gathering space. With the previous café space now available for re-purposing, and a much vocalized need from the community for a centralized information center to shine a light on the steadily growing and energized West Michigan landscape, the enthusiasm for the proposed GoSite project is tremendous!

In December of 2012, GRAM met with stakeholders in the city of Grand Rapids including Experience Grand Rapids, Downtown Development Authority, Downtown Alliance, Cultural Marketing Group, Arena District, and more to share the concept. A unanimous decision to pursue the idea was confirmed, and the information gathering stage has begun!
