RAD AMERICAN WOMEN

“In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month 2019, Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. (DGRI) announces a sweeping public art project to recognize and celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States of America.

 In partnership with local art gallery-boutique Lions & Rabbits, the City of Grand Rapids and numerous other partners still coalescing, DGRI recently began commissioning twenty-seven local female-identifying artists to paint portraits of influential women on mechanical boxes located throughout Downtown Grand Rapids.

 The project is inspired by "Rad American Women A-Z," a New York Times bestselling book written by Kate Schatz and illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl.”
