Preston Penwork, 2018 Exhibition and Opening Reception

September 7, 2018 5:00 PM

Join us on Arts Night Out from 5 - 8 p.m. for Preston Penwork, a collection of ink doodles by local artist, teacher and illustrator, Dennis Preston. Most of the pieces in this show are entirely new works, combined with a select few that appeared in Dennis's most recent adult coloring book, Preston potpourri Volume 3. Featuring many characters and themes, Preston's works are detailed and multilayered, sometimes edgy or odd, sometimes funny and entertaining and offer much for the eye to take in and the mind to ponder.

Creative Placemaking Summit 4

October 4, 2018 8:00 AM

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
