GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) The excitement is already growing around ArtPrize 2014, but there’s no need to wait until it starts to take in some creative works of art. The Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA) fourth annual fall gala, “OddBall,” will raise money to support the organization’s year-round art events.
The event features a “Lux” theme this year. UICA’s Events Coordinator Taylor Greenfield is creating an indoor/outdoor modern garden party that will feature the work of ArtPrize artists. Along with the art and entertainment, appetizers, small plates, and desserts from the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel will be featured as well as a cash bar. Guests will leave with a selection of gifts from the 14 local vendors that will be featured at the event.
The OddBall is at 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 13 at UICA on Fulton Street. Tickets are $125.03 per person and $98.89 for UICA members. You can buy tickets online. For more information on becoming a member of the UICA, visit their webpage.
