EXIT SPACE PROJECT

2 Fulton West, The Original Exit Space

The original "Exit Space" is the wall above the emergency exit at the UICA. This space birthed an idea and started an artistic project to beautify Greater Grand Rapids. The Exit Space Project was born here, at the corner of Fulton and Commerce, in the space precariously positioned above an exit door and emergency egress staircase. In 2013, this blank wall inspired Erwin Erkfitz and Brandon Aleman to paint the first mural in the space and foster the project that would host a constantly changing series of local artists with fresh content on a wall viewed by thousands of motorists and pedestrians each day. From this small, slightly awkward exit space, the Exit Space Project began. See the art work that is there today, keep going back as the work in this space changes every few months.
