The ninth annual Fall into the Arts exhibit at the Nuveen Center showcases local student achievement in the arts and gives community members the opportunity to support the art program at their favorite school. Proceeds from donation buckets placed alongside each group of artwork are returned directly to the school’s art department, allowing the teacher to purchase much-needed supplies despite dwindling school budgets. In lieu of a donation bucket, one school has chosen to put its artwork up for silent auction, allowing bidders to vie for seven handcrafted works of art. The exhibit remains on display now through December 21, 2013. Community members are invited to view the artwork, donate to the school of their choice, and cast a vote for the People’s Choice Award.
The Nuveen Community Center for the Arts is located at 8697 Ferry Street in downtown Montague. Exhibit hours are Tuesday-Friday, 12-5 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. There is no charge for admission. Call 231-894-2787 for information about holiday hours.
