The Fine Arts Center will feature a diverse line-up of highly accomplished West Michigan artists in a series of five residencies from August 2013 through April 2014. A public reception at the beginning of each residency will introduce the featured artist to the community and unveil an exhibition of their work in the Fine Arts Center gallery.
All exhibits will be open for public viewing during regular hours of operation (Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.) and designated evening hours.
The artists will provide a variety of interactive presentations and demonstrations for Forest Hills students and/or adults in the Center’s Artist-in-Residence studio and area schools.
Each year, a committee of art educators, local artists and community members will identify potential artists in a variety of media and invite them to apply to the program. Five or six residencies will be awarded annually and presented to the community as a series. Selections are made based on the art form and the artist’s scope of experience, body of work, and demonstrated ability to work effectively with community members and students. Information about the AIR Program can be obtained by contacting the Forest Hills Fine Arts Center.
