Civic Studio at Straight and Wealthy

January-April 2022
336 Straight St. SW

Civic Studio is proud to present Superfund Coffee Hide Underground Furniture Strike, an exhibition of research-driven art that looks at the histories, presents, and futures of the SWAN neighborhood on the west side of Grand Rapids. Working in a variety of media—video, drawing, installation, design, sound, and photography—the artists in Civic Studio have responded to diverse subjects including the Butterworth Landfill, the role of coffee culture in gentrification, the leather trade, symbolic and literal burial sites, and the driving forces behind the furniture labor strikes of the early twentieth century.
