Peaches is an elegant Georgian-style home located in Heritage Hill, now serving as Grand Rapids' premier B&B. Built in 1916, it is in nearly original condition, including picture rail in every room and would be the most natural place to hang art...in the setting that can display it best: home. We will be selecting both indoor hanging art, indoor sculpture and outdoor sculpture. We can practically "stop traffic" with our outdoor art selections. Last year, we had phenomenal response & were categorized as one of the best shows by several professionals. This year, we are close to an exhibit center, & taking more artists, so we expect more great response!

Coit Creative Arts Academy is the elementary art school for the Grand Rapids Public Schools. The original building was built in 1880 and it is the oldest working school in Michigan. In 2002 it became an arts school. As a result families have moved into the neighborhood specifically to send their children to Coit Creative Arts Academy. Due to this the neighborhood is more art savvy than most others. It is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Medical Mile and within walking distance to downtown. With school budgets as they exist being an exhibitor at Coit Creative Arts Academy is a wonderful nod to the dedication artists feel toward arts education.
