Events and Exhibitions
Now - May 17
ULTRABRICATION: The Art of Randal Crawford
On view are more than 300 art pieces representing the vision of this multi-media artist and Professor of Art at Delta College in drawings, paintings, weavings, wood carvings, ceramics and digital imagery. While diverse, each piece reveals the artist's perceptions of the forces of nature and of the world he has encountered. It is through the artist's ultimate manipulation of these impressions and of the media itself that the viewer will experience an imaginative journey of their own.

FALL IN...ART AND SOL
Fall In… Art and Sol is a month-long celebration to encourage people to “fall in” and experience the depth of cultural opportunities available across Michigan’s Great Lakes Bay Region. It is a showcase of artistic and architectural expression, scientific achievement and the region’s natural splendor. Throughout October, participants will present exhibits, performances, workshops, classes, tours and more – all produced by the best the Great Lakes Bay Region has to offer.
Fall In… Art and Sol is scheduled for October to coincide with National Arts and Humanities Month, an annual nation-wide celebration recognizing the importance of culture in the US.
Fall In… Art and Sol is an initiative of the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance and is supported by local businesses, civic associations and the regional Convention and Visitors Bureau.
