2013 ArtPrize Venue Exhibition Center
  • Default

UICA’s 2013 ArtPrize® exhibition 'PLAY' concentrates on art that explores the act of amusement. While interactive participation plays an integral component in most pieces, some selections also incite the play of the imagination. Experience the fun as you engage with the surreal, delicate, and collective art of 'PLAY'. ----------------------------------- The Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA) is located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. UICA’s ArtPrize exhibition will feature site-specific installations and large-scale suspended works, with several locations two-story in scale offering multiple perspectives for viewers. UICA’s 120’x 30’ outdoor terrace also serves as an exhibition space for 3D and site-specific projects.

For over 36 years, UICA has remained a regionally focused institution bringing world-class contemporary culture to West Michigan. By exposing the public to national and international art, we fulfill our organizational mission to inspire dialogue and cultural awareness within our community and beyond.
