Great variety of displays both temporary and permanent. It is amazing that a relatively small city can support what this museum offers. Beautiful works of art, some quite significant in their origins. Great staff very helpful. Be careful about parking, the GR gendarmes are quite...More

This is a small museum with a perfectly adequate collection of art, but the temporary exhibit by Anila Quayyum Agha really wowed me. I was there on opening day (5/19/2018) for Intersections. For those not familiar with her work, I have posted a photograph because...More

The GRAM is a nice 3 story museum in the heart of Grand Rapids. It has mostly paintings but does have special artists. The Andy Warhol exhibit was very interesting. A good place to visit during winter for a couple of hours.

Again, free during ArtPrize and includes entries throughout. The majic of ArtPrize is that what is embedded throughout the city (even in the river!) are pieces of the same tone and style as the exhibit in the more permanent displays.

Visited the GRAM as a winter diversion. Both of us were blown away with delight for the 3 temporary exhibits now showing. The Andy Warhol museum-organized collection did a great job of being informative about the artist and his times as well as displaying a...More

We did not know what to expect when we visited this museum, but thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there. While not overwhelmed with "major works of major artists" there was a good range of interesting work and some special displays that were particularly strong.

large and well laid out venue. Some of the exhibits were very interesting, but I was disappointed with the Andy Warhol exhibit. There was an audio-visual exhibit that was very good, but it was way too loud so we didn't stay to watch it in...More
