Grand Rapids Art Museum

2014 ArtPrize Venue Exhibition Center
  • Default

--- ArtPrize 2014 at GRAM: [DIS]COMFORT ZONES --- will explore the powerful ways artists take risks and push boundaries. Whether through subject matter, process, or point of view, artists pull viewers – and themselves – out of their comfort zones to see, feel and understand the world differently. Areas of exploration might include the body and the self, pleasure and pain, politics and power, fear and vulnerability, safety and violence, the center and the margins, wholeness and fragmentation, exaggeration and distortion, truth and deception, or others.

Focusing on art, design, and creativity, GRAM will provide diverse platforms for experiences, ideas, and dialogue that enrich the human spirit and build practical learning skills. Through dynamic exhibitions, collections, learning initiatives, and community collaborations, GRAM will increasingly serve as a cultural beacon and civic anchor. The Museum is the first LEED Gold certified art museum in the world. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings.
