In & around the 80s is our newest modern art Exhibit at the Besser Museum. For this exhibit, ACC fine arts instructor Brian Schorn has carefully crafted a display of fine art pieces from the Besser Museum's permanent collection, exhibiting artworks that have not been on display in decades. This exhibit showcases many modern art pieces, including painting designed by Native American artists from North East Michigan.
You can see this unique exhibit on display until early 2023.
Exhibit Opens Saturday, January 21 with an open house public reception from 2pm - 3pm.
Using her own photographs of architectural features from what was once the Fletcher Paper Company, Carol Lund creates rich, colorful, layers of texture to create her unique artwork. The process of marking art using computer-generated images as a medium takes hours for the artist to create the vision imagined when taking the photo. Lund looks beyond the common and creates the spectacular. Exhibit opens Saturday, January 21 with an open-house public reception from 2pm - 3pm and will be on display through July 29th.
