Each year, UICA is host to one of the most vibrant and eclectic exhibitions in Grand Rapids. This city-wide art show celebrates the creativity of over 1, 200 students from 73 public and shared-time schools within the Grand Rapids Public Schools. UICA's gallery walls are covered with artwork from GRPS K-12 students!

The GRPS Show will be exhibited at UICA from March 15-22.

 its no secret that i am a huge UICA fan, but i have to say that this is the 2nd exhibit of this type i have been able to take my 9 year old sons to at the UICA and it gets them thinking that they too can do something creative and it be worthwhile. They came home and made crazy collage art for hours after the trip to UICA last weekend. We are lucky to live in such an art oriented community
