The Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids is calling for artists to produce a miniature golf hole for an upcoming exhibition:
It’s time to play at the UICA! This winter we will present an exhibition of artist-designed mini-golf featuring 19 extreme and inventive holes (two nine hole courses with a common tenth, grand finale hole). UICA’s mini-golf course will take over all five galleries at our 41 Sheldon Boulevard location.
UICA’s first mini-golf exhibition will occur during the premiere of LaughFest in Grand Rapids. LaughFest is a citywide festival of comedy, performance, exhibitions and film, inspired by the work of Gilda Radner and Gilda’s Club laughfestgr.org. The objective of our mini-golf exhibition is to be a remarkably creative, slightly competitive, laugh riot for families and friends.
Your challenge is to create a single hole for this mini golf course. Artists, designers, and architects are invited to design, build and install holes that respond to and utilize UICA’s floors, columns, hallways, windows, rafters, and more.
