Congratulations to our 50 Artists of the Great Lakes Bay Region
Artists applied and were selected by a panel of experts in the visual arts and community leaders from the region. Each artist is featured in 50 Artists of the Great Lakes Bay Region, an exhibition in the Rowley gallery of Studio 23 from September 21 – November 11, 2023. An additional piece of artwork from each artist has been selected to be reproduced on a metal plaque and installed as a part of Art Around the City.
We know that our community is the reason we can fulfill our mission to provide the Great Lakes Bay Region with a vibrant arts center that is dedicated to making the arts relevant and accessible to all. You help make that happen with your generous financial support of our events and programs.
