Grand Rapids, MI Reflects Activity and Vibrancy!

The sun was shining and a new year begun so we decided to take in the Richard Avedon exhibit at the Grand Rapids Art Museum this past Saturday.  The GRAM is truly a Grand Rapids treasure with something for almost everyone.  This particular exibition was facinating because of the technique and style Avedon utilized as well as the subjects chosen, both obscure and famous.  We found the museum humming with people both young and old, each enjoying various exhibitions throughout the building.

Outside the streets and sidewalks were filled with folks enjoying the sunshine and attractions nearby.  Rosa Park Circle, designed by the famed Maya Lin was packed with skaters of all ages, all able to enjoy the reflection of downtown buildings on a nearby mirrored facade.  This downtown attraction was designed with water in various forms...frozen, liquid and vapor...and is a gathering place year round.  One can rent or bring their own skates and skate for a minimal fee surrounded by the urban scene.  Nearby are coffee shops and restaurants where skaters can warm up with hot chocolate and reenergize.

If you haven't taken time to take a stroll down Monroe Ave. of late you should find the time to do so.  Things are

ever changing and there's always something new to experience!
