It’s summertime, summertime sum sum summertime! I hope you are hearing the tune! And there is nothing like summertime Friday afternoon in downtown Big Rapids. The sounds of music fills the streets, people are saying howdy, children’s laughter, the smell of popcorn at the Farmer’s Market and artists down the street at Artworks Painted Turtle Gift Shop and Gallery creating. Excitement everywhere!
This summertime there will be so much going on at 106 North Michigan Avenue. Artist receptions, an Evening of Harmony with the Canadian Lakes and Great Lakes Mens Choral Groups, Intimate Theatre production of God of Carnage, General Federation of Women’s Clubs Garden Tour & Reception, chalk artist, face painting, summer camps that are featuring the art of the performance, pottery & building a mosaic, sidewalk sales, and art exhibits like Sweet: 16 Years of Artworks Artists, Bubbles and What’s in the Truck.
Your support of Artworks allows us to provide this and so much more. Memberships, shopping, workshops, events, scholarships, volunteering, sponsorship all of these are ways you support the arts and humanities in our community. Artworks thrives because of you!
