I am pleased to share that as of September 24, 2014, Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University students have a NEW student benefit, courtesy of the college: a FREE one year membership to UICA! With this membership students will have access to four floors of cutting edge contemporary art, discounted tickets to Grand Rapids' only downtown movie theater, and invitations to gallery openings, performances, and talks. All students need to do is head to UICA and show their student ID to receive a UICA Member sticker.
Faculty and staff in each program and department at KCAD will be receiving an email from me about how to best optimize your student/class experience at UICA. A series of tours and talks to help students integrate into the UICA community will be forthcoming. I welcome any comments or questions you may have.
Want a tour of UICA? You can do that, too. Simply contact me and we’ll set up times to walk through the space.
Here is all this information broken down into handy bullet points:
Who: KCAD Students

When: September 24th
Where: Just a couple blocks away on the corner of Fulton and Division
