It all started in 2016, when we started to ask ourselves how to help bridge the barriers between art, community and economic advancements. Currently housing over 120 local visual artists, we function as a gallery, education center, and event space in the Creston business district. Pop up shows, community parties, classes, weddings and more- we welcome you to experience your own wonderland. each minute you spend in our cozy space will inspire you.
You will find us writing curriculum for Kent District Libraries, hosting our own classes, curating local venues, organizing artist markets and doing a lot of community outreach through public space design and killer street parties, After Dark GR.
Our goal is to serve to community by honoring the powers of inclusive space, locally made art, community initiatives and educational experiences. we are here to deliver these advancements at an affordable cost. If we can do it- why don’t we try it?
Have you heard about our outdoor beautification efforts this year? We will be hosting four After Dark programs in four neighborhoods this year! Check out the website for more information.
Have you heard about the alley activation projects? We will be working with Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. with Womens Way, an alley take-over to showcase the power of significant Grand Rapidian women and their role in our modern society.
Sculptures, installations, murals and more- we are here to create an artistic experience, honoring the Arts and the artists who live here!
FUN FACT: When you book an event with us, 30% of that event goes towards Arts programming!

Amazing Venue - Amazing People
Amazing hardly says enough. Tanya & Hannah went above and beyond to make our day perfect! Planning a wedding from over 1,500 miles away can be stressful – but our phone conversations with Tanya ensured us that everything was in the right hands. And, the moment we walked in for rehearsal we were greeted like long lost friends. Tanya kept everything rolling and was coordinating between all of our vendors. The venue itself is something truly magical & embraced by the community around it. If you use this venue we would also suggest using ‘Green with NV’ as your florist – he works inhouse & knows every perfect space of the venue. Bravo to all of you for making our day truly magical!Sent on 05/27/2019
