Marking over 100 years of service to the Grand Rapids metropolitan community, WMU is deeply committed to the Fine Arts. The Fine Arts are a culturally important area for higher education and the communities we serve. The University’s art collection (conservatively valued above $3.5 million), includes drawings, paintings, prints, textiles, sculptures and ceramics that engender awareness and appreciation of the visual arts while enriching our lives in many subtle and under-appreciated ways. The Frostic School of Art, Department of Dance, School of Music, and the Department of Theatre together form the College of Fine Arts at WMU – a center dedicated to future-oriented creative excellence. WMU provides interdisciplinary opportunities to visual and performing artists in innovative spaces that foster the creation, exhibition, and study of art. Ample parking adjacent to building in the Cherry Commerce parking ramp.

The early Christian church was one of the greatest patrons of the arts, so we believe that it is natural that today both artists and observers find the church as home to the arts and a place to hear God’s voice through artistic expression. For 43 years, First United Methodist Church has presented its annual "Celebration of the Arts", one of the largest juried spiritual art shows in the U.S. Works have included artists from many faith and spiritual traditions.

The B.O.B. (an acronym for Big Old Building) is located in downtown Grand Rapids. The 70,000-square-foot, four- story, red brick building was constructed in 1903 as Judson's grocery warehouse. It stood vacant for decades before The Gilmore Collection began its transformation, saving it from demolition. Its casual appeal, large size and historic charm have given The B.O.B. landmark / destination status in downtown Grand Rapids. Ambitious, expansive, and versatile, The B.O.B. offers a uniquely personal experience for every guest who walks through the door.

The twenty ArtPrize entries at the Has Heart venue in Veterans Memorial Park feature the veterans’ struggle with homelessness, PTSD, military sexual trauma, and veteran suicide. During the current pandemic, we have all felt a bit of the veterans’ sense of isolation and loneliness. But we can learn from the perseverance and resilience represented in this diverse group of officer and enlisted vets. Despite their injuries or lack of artistic training, this new type of ArtPrize venue gives veterans a voice through the collaboration of story, struggle, and healing art.
