At Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM), you can dig into some Freudian psychology by viewing the art in Real/Surreal. Grand Rapids is the first stop of the exhibit’s national tour developed by the Whitney Museum of American Art. Art from Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, Man Ray, Grand Wood and many others are currently on display through January 13th. Along with this exhibit, there is a show of Salvador Dali’s Twelve Tribes of Israel as a complement.
As a GRCC student or employee, you can visit the GRAM for free, along with other local museums, with your RaiderCard! This is an excellent opportunity to see amazing artwork and a beautiful LEED certified building. If you missed the chance to visit the GRAM during ArtPrize, this is the time to visit as the crowds are much smaller. The winner of this year’s competition, Elephants, will be on display through Thanksgiving so see it while you can!
Not able to visit the GRAM? Check out ARTstor in our databases. Some of the art is available for viewing as high quality images that allow the viewer to zoom quite close to see the minute details. Not all the pieces at the GRAM are in ARTstor.
