End of Year Message from Executive Director Kerry Hagy

Updated: Aug 26, 2020

It is with great enthusiasm that I have taken on the Executive Director position at this exciting time for the Art Center. It is my greatest pleasure to work with a board of directors committed to bringing a variety of arts programming to our entire community.

Over the past several years, community support of capital improvements to the South Haven Center for the Arts has helped ensure that the South Haven community has a beautiful venue to house meaningful arts programming. By supporting this transformation of our space, donors have made a real impact on our community. We thank you!

As a result of these improvements, many longtime residents of South Haven and visitors alike have entered the Center for the first time ever in 2018. It is with great pride that we have welcomed in new artists, members, visitors, students, and volunteers into the South Haven Center for the Arts in the last year.

By equipping the building with an elevator and restoring the wood floors in both the first and second floor gallery, artists in South Haven and southwest Michigan now have an accessible and professional space in which to share their talents and creativity with our community. Our ability to exhibit high quality fine art has been further enhanced through the addition of air conditioning and an improved security and fire alarm system.
