Windows GR Exhibit

Windows GR Exhibit.

The Museum purchased the three paintings from artists: Jalexia Stoutmyre, DeVante Barnes and Guillermo Sotelo, that were created specifically for the Windows GR Project. Windows GR is a public activation project, led by artists of color, that was created to highlight black voices and stories in response to the death of George Floyd, police brutality and systematic racism. Many artists worked collaboratively to paint the boarded up windows of businesses throughout downtown Grand Rapids over the summer of 2020. 

The three pieces of artwork are now a permanent part of the GRPM Collections

Hear from the artists about their experience creating their pieces, on their artwork being a part of  the GRPM and more.
