Where is the Holiday Artists’ Market?
Steelcase Town Hall
901 44th Street SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49508

Why did the market move from the UICA building?
As big as UICA is, our ongoing exhibitions led to space constraints last year that limited us to 40 vendors. In order to continue showing exhibitions on all four floors, and invite more artists to participate, we needed more room for the Market. When Steelcase generously offered the Town Hall space, we were happy to accept. We hope that all of UICA’s guests will attend the Holiday Artists’ Market, and still enjoy UICA’s December exhibitions, gift shop, and movies.

Where can I park?
Parking is FREE and will be well marked on the east side of Steelcase town hall.  Entrance is off of 44th street.
