Swimming Exhibit Opening Reception

The Glen Arbor Arts Center takes a deep dive into creative waters with Swimming, an exhibition. The exhibit opens March 31 with a reception, 5-7 pm in the GAAC Main Gallery, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.
Swimming focuses on a familiar activity that puts bodies into bodies of water. It explores the physical exercise literally; as a metaphor for success [swimming] or failure [sinking, underwater]; a direct, sensory experience; and through swimwear. The exhibition includes two companion programs:

Author Talk: A recorded conversation with John H. Hartig, Ph.D, author of the 2022 book Great Lakes Champions, the story of 14 people who loved the Great Lakes so much that they devoted their careers to leading grassroots partnerships to clean up the most polluted of these freshwater seas.

• Walk + Talk: GAAC Gallery Manager Sarah Bearup-Neal leads a conversational walking tour of the SWIMMING exhibit, and talks about selected works. April 8 and May 13, 11 am. FREE.
For more information, or to view the exhibition online, go to GlenArborArt.org / EXHIBITS.
