Rooting Deep Branching Out
August 9 to September 18, Open 1 to 4 daily
The Jordan River Arts Council (JRAC) is working with the Institute for Sustainable Living, Art & Natural Design (ISLAND) to present a collaborative art exhibition about place. We hope to craft a vision of what it means to live in Northwest Lower Michigan—particularly in our relationships to the specific geographies, economies, cultural communities and ecologies of the many small places that make up the north. Artists were invited to create, collaborate on or host works that allow viewers to move beyond the romantic and often facile answers to the question: “What does it mean to live up north?”
This show opens to the public on August 9, 2009 and the Opening Reception is August 15, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
