Winter Winter Blues 2’x2’ Non Juried Art Exhibit
Did you know that blue is an almost universally liked color?  It is known to lower the heart rate, improve mental clarity, and inspire creativity!  It’s also associated with intelligence and confidence.  So, beat the ‘winter blues’ by enjoying an evening of art, music, friends, and culture at the Besser Museum.

Featuring blues music by Chris Crown and Lee Kitzman, an assortment of blue refreshments provided by the Founders Society – Friends of Besser Museum, and great art created by Michigan artists.


Poetic Visions:  The Art of Lebadang
Among the highlights of the Besser Museum’s fine art collection are eighteen luminous works by the Vietnamese-born French artist, Lebadang (1922-2015).  Lebadang was a painter, sculptor, and printmaker who produced an enormous body of work over his long career. Best known for his inventive use of materials and techniques in the field of printmaking, Lebadang explored many themes, subjects, and styles.

This is the first time this collection will be exhibited in entirety at the Besser Museum.

Framing of this work was funded by the Candace Smith Fund and Besser Museum's Non-Juried Art Exhibit, Best Foot.


Our mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit authentic articles and artifacts of art, history, and science to 

inspire curiosity, foster community pride, and cultivate personal legacy.
