Downtown Mural Walk - Guided Day Trip

May 14, 2021 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Join Curator of Arts Education, Amber Oudsema, on a guided walking tour of the murals of downtown Grand Rapids. As a group, discuss your interpretations while exploring visual elements and principles of design. Stop at two special murals to hear from the artists who created them. Esan Sommersell and Alan Compo will discuss their artistic choices and the subject matter of their murals of Ethal Coe and Angeline Kelsy Yob respectively. Explore color, scale and movement on this inspiring spring walk. Expect a significant amount of standing and walking. Bring a water bottle and prepare for the weather. We will meet at a central downtown location to begin the walk. Register at MeijerGardens.org/calendar or call 616-974-5225.
