I am looking for the city of my dreams. I live in Grand Rapids Michigan. I was born here. I have left and come back. I want to see the art and culture of this city bloom because I want to bloom with it. What do I mean by bloom? I would like to see a gallery that does not have a frame shop connected to it. I would like to see full fledged art criticism happening right here and I am not talking about a nice little right up in the paper that simply describes what was in the show. I want to read an in depth look into what the art is about and wether it succeeds or fails, especially if if fails and why. I want to see dynamic relationships happening between UICA and GRAM and the DAAC. I want to see fluid and symbiotic relationships between the art community and the business community. I want to see more artists making a living from their work. I want to see a more dynamic interaction between the artists that are here so that we are really working together and helping each other develop our work and continuing to challenge each other to grow and take risks. Please help us make this happen.
