On May 29, Grand Rapids Magazine is taking over the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Both the city and the magazine have changed a lot since 1964, but the publication is honoring its '60s roots with local food, music, games, and giveaways inspired by the iconic decade. 1960s' attire, such as gogo boots, brights colors, and tunics, is suggested.
The dance floor will be fueled by live music and entertainment from Chance Jones, The Veloras, AB, and Audacious Hoopers. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will benefit the Creative Youth Center.
If states had state liquids, Michigan's would be water—it's home to the Great Lakes, 36,000 miles of rivers and streams, and 11,000 inland lakes. Michigan Blue Magazine provides a perfect guide to life by all this water, focusing on lakefront homes, watersports, and environmental issues, such as what to do when your lake goes into hibernation. And that's just one of Gemini Publications' many publications, all of which cover a different facet of modern life in Michigan. Grand Rapids Magazine for instance, focuses on everything from fine dining to style in its namesake city, whereas Grand Rapids Business Journal boasts informative columns, profiles of local business people, a business calendar of events, and more.
