GreenHill's Annual Meeting I Cocktails & Good Eats

Each June GreenHill hosts its Annual Meeting, giving our members an opportunity to have a quick look back at the year we are closing and to learn more about the upcoming year. The staff looks forward to this meeting because they too get a chance to think about what we accomplished over the last 12 months and look forward to what is exciting about the upcoming year. We also like to have speakers who are contributing to the artworld in different ways; over the years we invited the executive directors of Grand Rapid’s ArtPrize, Center for Craft Creativity + Design and NC Museum of Art. We put a special emphasis on speakers who talk about collecting original art—so this year we ...

The Value of Free Family Nights

GreenHill's Annual Meeting I Cocktails & Good Eats

I absolutely love working at GreenHill! I started out as a curatorial intern working in the gallery. Now as an ArtQuest Facilitator I help kids and parents with art activities and supplies, while also making sure the studio is well stocked and clean. Our busiest night is always free Family Night on Wednesdays.

Often a family will meet their friends and make art together. I love seeing how excited and creative the children get, even if they were hesitant and shy at first.   It’s great to see parents join in on the ...
