ATHENA Grand Rapids Walking Tour

ATHENA Grand Rapids Walking Tour

The number of organizations or causes that were founded or inspired by women in Grand Rapids history is staggering. Most of these institutions continue to operate today and have touched the lives of countless citizens through the years.

Learn more about these local lady legends at the ATHENA Walking Tour! Presented in partnership with Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. and Grand Rapids Running Tours, the tour will kick off at the Grand Rapids Art Museum and will take you to the abundant, noteworthy sights in our city that originated with women. We’ll also check out some of the public art recognizing women in our city, from the local artists who painted the RAD American Women electrical boxes,  to the featured female heroes of the Women’s Way Murals, and Community Legends Bronze Sculptures. This is a great opportunity to connect with other ATHENA advocates while sipping on a cold drink in the social district, all while getting inspired by lady legends, past and present!

Thursday, July 22
4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Tour begins at the Grand Rapids Art Museum
