Our August exhibition features the art of David Carrigan. David works in acrylics and oils on canvas as well as other mediums, including watercolor, silkscreen and pen & ink. He loves to tell stories with his work that reflects a variety of subject matter. David sees the world as a magical place and works to convey that to others through his art.

Our Wine Arounds are held monthly at restaurants and pubs throughout the Greater Lansing region and offer an opportunity for creative conversation around the arts. These are casual get-togethers that are open to all art enthusiasts. These gatherings offer up the perfect opportunity for sharing ideas and building new relationships. This is a no-host event. Please visit lookingglassbrewingcompany.com for menu and pricing. Following the Wine Around, we hope you will join us for the Lansing Sidewalk Poetry Project celebration and press event happening at the Lansing Art Gallery in downtown Lansing from 6 - 8 p.m.

Arts and culture. They shape who we are--connect us to what we love--forming our identity. Similarly, they connect us to our communities, too. Taking pride in and claiming our "place" stems from that connectedness and how we describe it to others. At Creative Placemaking Summit 4, we'll explore how creative placemaking, through an arts and cultural lens, can amplify our idea of identity. We will use metrics and exploration to discover ways to build our brand as a region-find words we can all use. #LansingPlacemakers
