What is OddBall?
This is the sixth annual OddBall, UICA's signature gala celebrating contemporary art in West Michigan. UICA's sponsors, friends, and fans come together to raise funds for UICA's year-round exhibitions and events at a party that is both festive and revelatory.

Where should I park?
Self-parking is complimentary for this event at the City of Grand Rapids' parking ramps. The entrance to the closest ramp, the Gallery Ramp, is on Commerce St. at Fulton.
The City of Grand Rapids offers one hour free parking in the Monroe Center Ramp located one block northwest of UICA. The Weston Commerce parking ramp is also a nice alternative located one block south.

Is this ArtPrize?
ArtPrize officially starts on 9/21, so OddBall is your first opportunity to see UICA's 2016 ArtPrize exhibition, FUTURE TALK. Some of the ArtPrize artists will be on site that night to meet you and talk about their entries.
