Saugatuck Center for the Arts-The Legacy of the Saugatuck Douglas Art Club


Beginning in the early 50’s, the Saugatuck/Douglas Art Club has nourished and encouraged the creation, examination and presentation of the performing and creative arts.  These purveyors of extraordinary altruistic values have shown a spotlight on our area's rich cultural heritage, uniqueness magic. They have and continue to support freedom of artistic expression and freedom.  As a result, the Art Club has served as an incubator, sponsor, and supporter of both artists and new arts organizations in its artistically vibrant hometowns of Saugatuck and Douglas.

This retrospective exhibition is a celebration of the legacy of the Saugatuck/Douglas Art Club.  Begun as a way for artists young and old alike to support each other during the winter months in Michigan, the club has grown into a vibrant arts organization that has gifted nearly $200,000 in scholarship money, supporting local students who wish to continue their education in the arts.

We encourage you, your family and friends to see this wonderful exhibition at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts and runs through August 8, 2011. Located at 400 Culver Street, downtown Saugatuck.
