Meet Our 2018 Exhibiting Artists
The Arts Council of Greater Lansing offers members the opportunity to showcase artwork in the contemporary setting at 1208 Turner Street. Exhibits run for one month (as assigned by the Arts Council). An open call to dues-paying Arts Council members is announced twice per year.
