Doors to Grand Rapids' Past

Doors to Grand Rapids' Past is our take on a polyptych, bearing a collection of plein aire original watercolors, acrylic paintings, drawings and writings by Morna Shows Workman, They portray life in Grand Rapids in the 70's-90's. The art will be displayed on 10 hinged doors, created by Mark Vainner of 616 Art. The doors will form a zig-zag, with art on all sides that the viewer can walk into and around. The exhibition consists of Grand Rapids downtown cityscapes, sidewalk scenes, residential exteriors & interiors, landscapes, parks, rivers, bridges and people in motion living life. Suzanne Vainner of 616 Balloons will be creating balloon art for the exhibit as well.
