The world has quickly gone more virtual than ever and the South Haven Center for the Arts is no exception.
The old building has gone temporarily dark, and for the first time in 71 years, the SHCA Annual Member show, “Setting Stones,” is exhibited on a bright and optimistic screen to keep art alive and well in South Haven during these extraordinary times.
“The mission of the South Haven Center for the Arts—enriching the community through the arts—is just as, if not more, important than ever,” said Executive Director Kerry Hagy. “The art center is dreaming into the future; imagining and innovating to adapt the organization and ground ourselves in our mission and work to meet the challenge.”
“Setting Stones” places a special focus on the fine art and talent of its members. The art center will share this thought-provoking body of work on the website and Facebook page through May 16, 2020.
The exhibition features an eclectic and wondrous collection of creative interpretations of stone stemming from the brainstorming of the SHCA Exhibition Committee. They began by thinking of stones as monuments: Stonehenge, the 300th anniversary of Plymouth Rock, shrines; and moved on to other idioms: walls and boundaries, set in stone, rolling stone, stone cold, written in stone.
