Tips from locals
One of the major venues for ArtPrize in GR. A multi-use facility devoted to the creative arts, with programs in visual arts, film, music & dance. Frequently changing exhibits.
While the UICA is a great contemporary art museum in it of itself, it holds a small theater in the basement, which screens the latest indie films, documentaries, and more. Check the website for showtimes and community events, like Open Projector Night.
