Free, all-ages welcome.

Join us as we celebrate the completion of the newest addition to the Exit Space Project roster of murals. Throughout the month of July, muralist Natalia Rak has been painting a mural on the south-facing wall of 26 Ionia SW (the Richmond Stamp building). The mural is scheduled to be complete by July 23 and we’ll have a ribbon cutting ceremony upon its scheduled completion.

This mural project is coming together through the combined efforts of UICA, Downtown Grand Rapids Inc, and Grand Rapids Sister Cities International. One of the reasons Natalia Rak was selected as the artist for this project is her connection to the Grand Rapids Sister City, Bielsko-Biała, Poland.

Join us for brief remarks, a ribbon cutting, live music, refreshments, and Polish Pączki treats. This event is free and all-ages are welcome.
