The Kruizenga Art Museum, opened and dedicated in September 2015, provides exhibition space for the college’s extensive permanent collection and visiting exhibitions. The collection, including nearly 4,000 objects, spans centuries and represents a wide range of cultures. The museum was developed with an emphasis on engaging faculty and students from many academic disciplines in the study and interpretation of art. Its vision is to be an educational resource not only for Hope College, but for all of West Michigan.

Looking for that perfect holiday gift? Wishing you had a piece of art sculpted by one of your favorite professors? Wondering what to do this weekend? Check out the Billy Mayer Art Scholarship Sale and GRAM Exhibit!

The late Billy Mayer was an inspiring teacher and generous mentor who led the sculpture and ceramics programs at Hope College. His "Here" sculpture was created over 20 years and is comprised of 440 ceramic skulls. Each skull is "thinking about" a different object, in essence creating a self-portrait of his thoughts and memories.

You can view his work, currently on display at the Grand Rapids Art Museum, or purchase a skull online. Thirty-eight items have been discounted in November, one for every year that Billy taught at Hope. Proceeds will be donated to the Billy Mayer Scholarship Fund at Hope College.
