Formed Histories

April 7, 2014

Civic Studio presented Formed Histories: a guided spatial tour of the West Side of Grand Rapids. The tour departed from Civic Studio's project space Showroom (428 Bridge St) on Monday, April 7 at 5:30pm. The tour was free, open to the public, and all ages. 

Site-specific projects produced by Civic Studio will compliment a curated tour of important sites from local history on the West Side. These projects are meant to re-imagine life 100 years ago, making connections between the past, present, and future of the city. Highlights of the tour include explorations of the rich history of labor, the former canal, and what lies below the highway. In addition, these site-specific projects will engage tour participants in an interactive, educational, and playful experience.
