UICA exhibits work from regional, national and international artists, and hosts  dynamic events including concerts, artist markets, and other special events that build Grand Rapids' creative community. UICA’s movie theater shows independent movies, foreign films, and documentaries six days a week.

Coming Home is a series of exhibitions featuring works by emerging and established Michigan artists. Following SENSE and the international spotlight of ArtPrize, Coming Home will return our focus inward, celebrating Michigan’s role as a platform for inspiration, exploration, and creative development by highlighting a diverse group of working artists. Coinciding with the calendar year’s passing of the seasons, and the broader homecoming of travelers, Coming Home celebrates both departures and reunions.

“BYOB is a celebration of the new world we live in and a glimpse of what computing could look like in the future. Today the internet is confined to screens. Tomorrow information will surround us, composing our surfaces, defining our spaces, enmeshing itself with the ether. A moving image is never an object, and when it is coupled with the increased flexibility of portable projection, the realm of experience quickly expands.” —Rafaël Rozendaal, creator of Bring Your Own Beamer
