Ann Arbor Art Center
How many other cities can boast a 100-year-old local arts organization? I don't have an answer, but I do know that Ann Arbor is pretty lucky. The Ann Arbor Art Center celebrates its centennial this year; join in the celebration by attending one of the many upcoming art exhibits or WineFest, coming up May 6-8.
First up, catch the tail end of Potential!, a juried show of art from Washtenaw County's high school artists, which runs through Sunday, May 9th. May will also feature several other awesome exhibits, such as the post-painting paintings of Kristen Letts Kovak, an exhibit of print art by various Michigan artists, and even an exhibit of hand-painted skateboard decks which will be sold to raise funds for the Ann Arbor Skatepark. Coming up in less than a week is WineFest, which features three wine dinners May 6th, 7th, and 8th, each with a different twist. WineFest is a fundraiser for the Art Center and its various projects, and also includes silent and live auctions, special exhibits, and wine tastings. Tickets are available online.
