Alexis Rockman: The Great Lakes Cycle Exhibition
January 27 - April 29
The Great Lakes Cycle, organized by the Grand Rapids Art Museum, is a multi-faceted solo exhibition of all new works by New York-based artist Alexis Rockman, known for his critically acclaimed, ecology-based works of art.
The Great Lakes – Erie, Huron, Ontario, Michigan and Superior – hold 20 percent of the world’s fresh water and form an interconnected system that is among the most beautiful, economically significant and ecologically complex regions on the planet. The Lakes are one of the most precious resources for the future of all life on earth. In this timely exhibition, Rockman examines the history of the Great Lakes, the current challenges in the region, and the opportunities to positively shape its future. His work celebrates the majesty and global importance of the Lakes while identifying factors – visible and invisible – that threaten the system.
Admission: Free for members; $10 for adults; $8 for seniors and students with ID; $6 for youth 6 – 17; Free for children 5 and under. Free for everyone on Meijer Free Tuesdays and Thursday evenings from 5-9 p.m.
