Artsy Adventure

Spring has sprung and Lola and I were ready for an afternoon on the town! We always make it a goal to be more cultured and hip, so we decided to spend our afternoon at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts (or more known as the UICA). It is an awesome gallery downtown Grand Rapids. It features art from locals as well as international art. It certainly has a little something for everyone! The pictures below are from a current exhibition called "Mercurial Silence" by Caroline Gore showing how grief and loss manifest in society.

For our day out I decided to rock some spring pastels with an eggshell Jackett Jacket, an Echo scarf with a splash of pink, and a little wrist party with Zenzii and Blessings in Disguise bracelets. The whole outfit was pulled together with a Vince top and Vince boyfriend pant (Lola was sure to let me know, though she may not want a boyfriend she definitely wants the pants!)

Lola wanted to break out her summer attire, so she wore a Rachel Zoe python print dress, with a Kenneth Jay Lane necklace and Zenzii cuff. It was the perfect blend of edgy and fun to lure the artsy men in. I think Lola spent more time looking at them than the art!

It was such a cool experience seeing art made by people right here in GR. The exhibitions are always changing and Lola and I can't wait to go back!
