The Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) is an art museum located in Grand Rapids, Michigan with collections ranging from Renaissance to Modern Art and special collections on 19th and 20th century European and American art, including such modern art works as Richard Diebenkorn’s 1963 Ingleside. The museum has in its collection 5,000 works of art, including over 3,500 prints, drawings and photographs.

History

The museum was founded in 1910 under the name Grand Rapids Art Gallery, which was soon altered to its present name. Initially based in a residence, it moved to an historic Federal Building in 1981. In 2004, construction began on a new green museum building, which was to be the world's first LEED certified art museum. The 125,000 square feet (11,600 m2) building, which features 20,000 square feet (1,900 m2) of gallery and exhibition space, was designed by architect Kulapat Yantrasast of wHY Architecture.
