Lions & Rabbits is an art gallery, wedding rental venue, and community retail space located in the Creston neighborhood of Grand Rapids, MI. Formerly a St. Vincent DePaul's thrift store, the space now serves as a place where people can learn, create, and gather.

What's in a name?

Lions & Rabbits signifies the strength, gentleness, and beauty found throughout the animal kingdom -- the brilliant power of diversity. It's our hope that the space will become a hub for different types of art and artists, and allow the community to come together to celebrate and support one another.

So what is it?

We are a versatile space aimed at showcasing visual and performing artists while providing the community with opportunities for creative engagement. By hosting artistically driven events and weddings, we are able to offer local artists a space to showcase their work in a more affordable atmosphere. Lions & Rabbits serves as the primary studio space for artist/owner Hannah Berry and florist, Nathan Veeneman. Our licensed yoga teachers, Adam Hutchens and Jennifer Stewart-Dodgson continue to cultivate weekly wellness in the space.  

One of our missions is to promote local art growth. If you are interested in taking a class, please email us and we can find the right teachers for you or your party. 

If you are interested in participating in our rotation, shoot us an email with your portfolio attached!
