An integral part of the Grand Rapids landscape, Western Michigan University’s downtown location is situated in the business and entertainment area just south of VanAndel Arena. The renovated 5-story historic building is located on the well-trafficked SW corner of Cherry and Ionia in the energetic urban Heartside District. The exposed brick and beam construction offers a unique setting to showcase works of art in a number of different display formats. Interior display areas (some raw space), as well as exterior of building (flat – facing N, S, or W) are available. WMU’s downtown location is accessed by more than 1,500 graduate students, as well as visitors, faculty, staff, alumni, and conference and event attendees participating in sessions during ArtPrize. Ample parking is adjacent to the building, which is within easy walking distance to several of the city’s newest and most exciting dining spots as well as hotels, museums, shops, and galleries.
