ANN ARBOR ART ASSOCIATION
March 9, 2010
For my entire life as a painter, 50 years, I’ve benefited enormously from the Art Association - as a student, member, board member, teacher, and exhibitor. What a splendid connection to have, associating with other artists and art lovers of all ages in the ambience of an organization devoted entirely to the visual arts! After studying at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design (MFA’69), I had my first exhibition at the Art Center and have had two others since then along with work in the gallery shop and in group shows. (A retrospective is scheduled for June 18-Aug 8.)
Many staff members and artists I’ve met there have become dear friends. The organization has progressed through a remarkable evolution in the effort to assist artists and townfolk in the pursuit of art. I can testify that this is a vibrantly active and creative non-profit exploring what art in the community can mean for citizens. I’m eternally grateful for what it has done for me.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
presenting my artwork to the public with great assistance by staff.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the art I've experienced and the people I've met.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
kind and helpful!
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
change the world by encouraging creativity, peace and a way to live life to the maximum.
