The Grand Rapids Art Museum has released the lineup for the multi-genre summer concert series held on its terrace.

The ninth-annual GRAM on the Green will feature Latin alternative, jazz, hip-hop and folk-rock artists from the region.

Shows will run from 6-9 p.m., unless otherwise noted, on Thursday nights throughout July and August.

Each event will include live music, dancing, food trucks, art-making activities and a cash bar.

Admission to the museum is free from 5-9 p.m. during GRAM on the Green evenings, as part of Meijer Free Thursday Nights.

Museum exhibits on display will include “The Art of Rube Goldberg,” “Black Waves: The Tattoo Art of Leo Zulueta,” “Offshore and on the Beach” and the permanent collection on Level 3 of the museum.


The Grand Rapids Art Museum is internationally known for its distinguished design and LEED Gold certification.

Established in 1910 as the Grand Rapids Art Association, the GRAM includes more than 5,000 works of art, including American and European 19th- and 20th-century paintings and sculptures and more than 3,000 works on paper.

The GRAM also has a growing collection in the area of design and modern craft, reflecting the city’s history of manufacturing and design.
