Since 1909 the Ann Arbor Art Center has been sparking creativity in people of all ages and artistic abilities. Their mission – “to be a contemporary forum for the visual arts through education, exploration, collaboration, and exhibition. We engage minds, expand perspectives and inspire growth in students of all ages, teachers, artists, and the community.”
Through innovative programming, provocative exhibitions, wide-ranging learning courses, and a gallery shop offering handmade artworks, the Art Center engages over 60,000 people annually in exploring the arts.
Each year the A2AC invites Midwest regional artists to submit up to five pieces for display in their gallery from mid November through the end of December for their annual holiday show and sale. I was fortunate to have all five of my submissions accepted for exhibition. I was also happy to learn that my framed drawing “The Stork and His Man” was sold and hopefully, brightened someone’s Christmas.
