Grand Rapids Art Museum, Grand Rapids Michigan

Postby GoogieHowser » Wed Apr 15, 2009 5:45 pm

Name: Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM )
Architect: Aaron Loewenson
Year: 2007

Street: 101 Monroe Center Grand Rapids, MI 49503
City: Grand Rapids
State: MI
Zip: 49503
Country: USA


Type: new, modern looking art museum located in Michigan's second largest city.

Status: new

Description: the new home of the Grand Rapids Art Museum is truly a beautiful, modern site to behold. Completed in 2007, the museum is the first art museum to be designated a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building. I've been in it twice, and it definitely conveys that austere, serene presence that modern architecture defines and art contemplation requires.
