“Community based art organization located in Grand Rapids”

Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA) is a vibrant research and development center for the art of today and tomorrow. Through interdisciplinary presentation, education, community studios, and art therapy, we actively challenge both artists and audiences to new levels of creative activity, collaboration, dialogue and healing. UICA presents dynamic programming in the visual arts, music, film, literature, dance and performance art that, because of its content or technique, might not otherwise find a venue in West Michigan. UICA's unique curatorial committee structure nurtures professional, diverse, community-based participation and ensures that all programs are artistically excellent, thought provoking and innovative. Last season, more than 300 contemporary artists from across the country showed and performed at UICA, 500 people worked in our studios, and 30,000 visitors were encouraged to new levels of insight and connectedness. UICA received high honors for both programming and leadership including, best thing to do (Grand Rapids Magazine), best place to view art and best alternative film program (On The Town), and our director was twice recognized as a top community and business leader (Grand Rapids Magazine and Grand Rapids Business Journal). Chosen 2007 Coming Up Taller semifinalist by the President's Committee on the Arts and the Endowments for the Arts, and National Endowment for the Humanities. On This Page ? Property Slideshow ?
