“Simple”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

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 lyrics was Dylan writing? Where did he draw his inspiration in that period? Just some background would have added interest to the photos. We were glad we stopped in though.

“Lovely little place”

Stopped in on a whim to see the Bob Dylan photography exhibit. Staff was very friendly, especially Phoenix the black cat! Even when traveling, support local arts and artists...

“Great inexpensive classes for kids!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

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 enjoy African masks, they really enjoyed all the embellishments for the masks. Julia did a fabulous job teaching both classes. (please only leave your children if they are 5, 4 year olds that were left by their parents took away from the class.)

“South Haven Center for the Arts”

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.

“Small town, big art!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.
