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.”
Watch 27 artists complete their portraits throughout the month of April.
Grand Rapids Running Tours will be launching a guided walking tour app on May 7.
