Art with an Impact


  • Light Gallery + Studio 317 Division Ave S Grand Rapids, MI 49503 (map)

“Art With An Impact” is a curated collection of art about poverty in West Michigan.

The issues surrounding poverty affect all of us, but they’re often misunderstood. The artwork featured in this show explore subjects most closely related to poverty in our community: housing, food security, mental or behavioral health, family violence, youth education, or financial security. Learn more about these six issues here.

The exhibition will be available for viewing at Light Gallery + Studio February 1-22. The opening reception will be a chance to meet the artists and will feature a performance at 7pm.
