3/26/20 Update

In keeping with Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-21, the GAAC has closed its building for an indefinite time. Our foremost goal and mission is to protect our community from the spread of COVID-19. Suspending the GAAC’s business is something that, at the same time, we do with heavy hearts, but knowing that everyone must do their part to get through these uncertain times. Like many of you, our staff is working from home – working to find outlets to connect, entertain, or maybe even distract us for a moment. We will be creating virtual exhibits, recommending articles, creating at-home art projects inspired by artworks in our galleries, and giving you the resources you need to connect with art while sequestered away in your homes.

As a nonprofit, our members and visitors are what keep us going. Your support through online memberships and donations will be the only source of revenue during this closure. If you can give, we ask that you consider a donation.

Thank you and stay safe,
Sarah Kime
Executive Director

Dear Members and Friends of Glen Arbor Art Center,

On Monday, March 16, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed a temporary order that closes theaters, bars, and casinos, and limits restaurants to carry-out and delivery orders. In response to Governor Whitmer’s declaration of a state of emergency for Michigan, and advisories from the Centers for Disease Control & World Health Organization, we have decided that all Glen Arbor Arts Center classes, programming and gallery are suspended until April 6.

Effective immediately, our office hours are Monday thru Friday, 9am to 3pm and our building will be closed to the public . Our staff can be reached by phone at 231/334-6112. All in-person meetings are suspended and rescheduled for after April 6.

IN THE MEANTIME: The GAAC will follow CDC and Michigan Department of Health and Human services regarding cancellations and closures and will keep you informed of any changes that occur via email and through regular postings on our website and social media.

Thank you for your goodwill and understanding. In this uncertain moment, I have every confidence in our community’s ability to pull together with kindness, care and concern for the common good. During this challenging time, we hope you can find solace and comfort through some creative activity. We hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,
Sarah Kime
