Meijer Free Tuesdays at the Grand Rapids Art Museum

A recent gift from Meijer supports "Meijer Free Tuesdays," a full day of free general admission to the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) each week, beginning in May 2013. The gift supports free admission for the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each Tuesday for the next two years, encouraging new and returning visitors to explore the galleries and take advantage of tours and other programs the Museum offers on these dates.

"We are especially grateful to Meijer for their support of GRAM and our service to the whole community," said Dana Friis-Hansen, GRAM Director & CEO. "With the end of the school year and summer approaching, Meijer Free Tuesdays are the perfect opportunity for everyone to dive into the Museum experience, exploring both the collections and special exhibitions. We knowthat Meijer Free Tuesdays will be popular with both adults and families, whether they live nearby or are visiting West Michigan for work or pleasure."

"Our father was passionate about art, and believed it should be available for everyone to enjoy and discover," said Hank Meijer, co-chairman of the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer. "We are pleased to honor him by offering Meijer Free Tuesdays at the Grand Rapids Art Museum so that others can learn, interpret and discover culture through a different lens."

On select Tuesday afternoons, GRAM will offer docent (volunteer educator)-led tours of the galleries. Visit the calendar at artmuseumgr.org for specific dates and times.
