Artcenter Traverse City is a 501c3 educational and charitable non-profit membership organization that has been serving artists, patrons, and the region since it was founded in 1951, along with the Northwest Michigan Symphony and Northwestern Michigan College. Artcenter provides opportunities in the areas of arts education, exhibits, shows, and art fairs. It has nearly 400 members and is governed by an active and involved 10-member board of directors.
This mission of Artcenter Traverse City is to respond to and serve community needs and expand opportunities for local artists, both at home and in other markets; attract artists and visitors to our community; and enhance the cultural assets of the region with art through education, exposition, and displays of public art.
Based on a rich history of art education, we will serve and involve the community and artists by concentrating on these core concepts:
- Act as a Community-Wide Visual Arts Organization
- Engage the Entire Community in the Visual Arts
- Provide Effective Arts Programming for All Media and Art Forms
- Collaborate with Other Arts- and Community-Related Organizations
