Join Us for Third Thursday

Come check out our community events in Grand Rapids, MI

Are you searching for something fun to do? Why not come down to Periwinkle Fog for Third Thursday. Third Thursday takes place at our Grand Rapids, MI business on the third Thursday of every month. This special community event supports 20 local vendors from 5 to 9 p.m. While you check out amazing artwork from the area, you'll have the opportunity to meet with the artists themselves.

Come out for a good time, engage within the community and enjoy food and drinks. You'll have so much fun, we guarantee we'll see you again for the next Third Thursday.

Meet the Artist Event!

Thursday July 21st

Libby VanderPloeg is Michigan-based artist and illustrator. After studying fine art at University of Illinois at Chicago and working as a graphic designer, art director, and even a cheese monger in Brooklyn, she decided to fully embrace her lifelong love of drawing through illustration. She loves creating quirky, sweet animated gifs that celebrate community and inclusivity, playing with pattern, and also making colorful, detailed maps. Her work has been featured in The New Yorker and New York Times and for a variety of other clients including Adidas, Anthropologie, Estée Lauder, Food 52, Hardie Grant, Levain Bakery, Nosy Crow, and Penguin Random House.
