Collaboration is a word not lightly tossed around in Grand Rapids.  Collaboration is what has made this community grow and thrive, and become the envy of communities around the country.  Around these parts, collaboration in the Art world is a key success benchmark, as well.

Kendall College of Art and Design (KCAD) is celebrating the opening of Pulso | Art of the Americas, a unique collaborative exhibition with Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA), at a reception to be held on Wednesday, October 30 from 6-9 p.m.
Featuring the work of 28 national and international artists, Pulso is rooted in an exploration of the ways in which regional boundaries affect the perception of art. While the artists involved all have ties to Latin America, this collaborative exhibition strengthens the dialogue among artists, both locally and globally.

Both the reception and the exhibition will span between KCAD, which will host work in the newly remodeled and expansive Fed Galleries, and UICA, which will utilize a variety of its versatile gallery spaces.

Pulso opens on October 30, and will run through December 4.  Additional events and programming will be announced soon.
