What's Goin' On!

Calling all resident artists!

You are invited to submit works that touch on the theme of home. From painting to writing and everything in between, works can be submitted in any size or format as long as they fit through a traditional door frame and are ready to hang. Limit two works per person. You also have the opportunity to sell your work during the exhibition if you so choose.

Drop off: May 30 3-6pm at the Dwelling Place Main Office (101 Sheldon Blvd in Grand Rapids)

Exhibition: June 1, 6-9pm at 106 South Division Avenue in Grand Rapids

Join a Heartside working group with The City of Grand Rapids

Over the past year, the City of Grand Rapids has been engaging the Heartside Neighborhood in a Quality of Life Study. Perhaps you’ve heard of, or participated in, some of the engagement events that have been hosted thus far, including the Listening Sessions (Fall 2017), Neighbor Knowledge Exchange Report-Out (January 2018), and the Work Group Orientation event (March 2018). The next step for the Study is to form Work Groups that tackle one of seven themes.

Paint Your Neighborhood with Hope College Students!

You are invited to join fellow Dwelling Place residents and Hope College students for two evenings of drawing and painting. 

Come to one or both nights to create a piece of artwork about your experiences in your neighborhood. 

All participating artists will have their works on display in a community art show this May. Painting nights are: April 3rd and April 5th from 4-5:30pm in the Herkimer community room at 309 South Division and dinner will be provided.
