Light the Night

Thursday, Dec 16, 2021
5:00 pm — 9:00 pm

On one of the longest nights of the year, join us for a celebration of light! In partnership with the Kaufman Interfaith Institute, guests of all ages can travel around the globe as featured community groups from The Hindu Temple of West Michigan, Temple Emanuel, Ahavas Israel, and the Dominican Center share how light is celebrated in their cultures. 

Bring your family for an activity-filled evening, where guests can learn the stories behind the artwork in the galleries, search for clues to a scavenger hunt, and follow guided workshops to create your own light-up artwork!

Admission and all activities are free; no registration required.

Please note: programming at GRAM is running with enhanced safety measures, including face covering requirements regardless of vaccination status, regular sanitization and cleaning, and restricting the sharing of tools/​materials among participants. Masks will be available for those who do not have one.
