Give Local Bay

Studio 23 / The Arts Center is participating in Give Local Bay for the third year.  This is an event that helps raise funds and awareness on a social media platform.  We have been a 501 (c) 3 non-profit for almost 60 years.  It is our mission to provide the Great Lakes Bay Area with a visual art center and creative educational activities for the community.  The galleries of Studio 23 are dedicated to making the arts relevant and accessible to all.  We pride ourselves on being YOUR community art center.

On May 2, 2017, from 12am to 12pm, you can make a donation to Studio 23’s endowment fund.  This fund helps ensure that we can continue our mission statement.  This helps make sure we can provide children & adults with a creative space.

“I am equally surprised and impressed with the talent of our younger generation.  I enjoy the vast expanse of creativity in the variety of ages taught at Studio 23”.

— Angela Griebe
(Kids Klay Instructor)


“I like Studio 23 because, I like to look at the gallery and hang out with friends.  I come for ART and FUN”.

— Nick
(After School Art Academy Student)

Everyone donation counts.  Whether you can donate $5 or $1,000, we appreciate everyone who supports our center.  What is special about Give Local Bay is the chance to win hourly prizes and a percentage of a $25,000 incentive pool.  The more our non-profit raises the more incentive money we receive!
