GRAM on the Green

Free outdoor concert series to feature live music and free Museum admission 

GRAND RAPIDS, MI, May 18, 2016 – The Grand Rapids Art Museum is thrilled to announce the lineup for its 8th annual GRAM on the Green free outdoor concert series.

GRAM will once again bring the heart of downtown Grand Rapids to life on Thursday evenings with its popular free summer concert series, GRAM on the Green. For six weeks in July and August, GRAM on the Green energizes the city and transforms the urban downtown landscape into a dynamic and inclusive gathering space. Guests of all ages are invited to relax on the Museum terrace as they enjoy diverse musical offerings by some of the best local and regional acts.

GRAM on the Green is back and better than ever,” said Cia Segerlind, Communications Manager. We can’t wait to share this year’s lineup with our guests. Our free summer concert series offers some of the greatest entertainment that downtown Grand Rapids has to offer. Come for the music, and stay for the art — we’re open late until 9:00 pm on Meijer Free Thursday Nights!”

Throughout the evening, guests are invited to visit the Museum galleries for free and explore exhibitions on view throughout the summer months: The Collection in Context, Maureen Nollette: Honorable Ordinaries, Whistler and his Circle: Etchings from the Permanent Collection, and Mirror Memory.

As a cultural beacon and civic anchor in the epicenter of Grand Rapids, the Museum strives to provide accessible, creative, and engaging programming all year long. In this spirit, general admission to the Museum is free during GRAM on the Green, as the concert series coincides with Meijer Free Thursday Nights.
