We went to this gallery specifically to see the two pieces by John Running-Johnson, some of whose work we had had the pleasure of seeing in Kalamazoo. That was very rewarding in itself, and then we met the live installation, Phoenix... she makes a very good exhibit, but was also wonderfully friendly and cuddly once she got off the plinth.... More

We liked the Forever Young exhibit of Bob Dylan photos on the first floor and the art boutique on the second floor. However, we would have liked more information. For example, were the photos of places Dylan lived, why was John Sebastian in the photos, what music were they collaborating on, etc.? In the time period of the photos, what... More

I love the South Haven Center for the Arts for many reasons!! The biggest reason would be the fantastic daily art classes they offer to children 4 and up! The classes are an hour long and incorporate learning and fun! My family enjoyed learning about Monet's Water Lillies and making their own masterpiece. They went back the next day to... More

The Art Center alternates local artist with exhibits of national known artists. It's small, but does a nice job for the size city it's in.

The South Haven Center for the Arts showcases many area artists. They host events, such as A Taste of Brazil, the 4th of July Art Fair, Mistletoe Marketplace....to name a few. They have Art classes for adults, and Center Studio during the summer offers children a chance to experiment with their artistic talents.

My grandchildren have participated in the art program offered during the summer Tuesdays through Fridays. The classes last 1 hour each with the option of bringing a lunch to eat between them. The projects were fun, the price $6 each. A nice diversion for a rainy day.

We like to check out local art so stopped in. They had a nice exhibit opening that day and a really fun machine called Artomat. It is a re-purposed cigarette machine that vends art. The Artomat was worth the stop here.
