ArtPrize @ KCAD

ArtPrize Eight is @ The Fed!

ArtPrize @ The Fed: RE•

For ArtPrize Eight, Goodwill Industries of Greater Grand Rapids and Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD) are teaming up to engage visitors to the radically open-ended art event in a conversation about the opportunities for more sustainable living that exist all around us.

RE• features both local and global artists who consider the timely and critical issues of environmental and social responsibility within their work. Through a variety of media, these artists promote positive social change, display action and accountability, and facilitate connectivity and collaborative experiences. By displaying plasticity in material usage and/or process, the pieces in this exhibition aim to broaden current notions of reclaiming, conserving, and sustaining.

RE• opens August 30, 2016 and will run through October 15, 2016.

Join us for ArtPrize Eight, September 21 - October 9.

ArtPrize Education Programs

Balancing STEAM

Art Education Days at KCAD will engage students in a synthesis of art, science, and engineering (STEAM) to solve an aesthetic problem focused on balance and stability, both visual and physical. Students will be introduced to artists whose works focus on balance as they engineer their own solution to a design problem and consider balance in their own lives. The final black structures will be placed on pedestals and displayed in mass as an installation in the KCAD atrium.
