Join the Leelanau Community Cultural Center on July 21, 2017 for the 25th Annual Art Leelanau Benefit Exhibit and Sale in support of the Old Art Building! The opening Friday night gala is from 5:30-9:30 PM with fine art, delicious food, live music, and fun games. The exhibit promotes the artwork of more than 70 Leelanau artists, with 40% of art sales going to benefit the operating fund.

The artwork for this year’s poster will feature “The Harbor" by Rick Koehler, who won the best of show at the “Leland Air” event on Memorial Weekend. There will be 50 limited edition prints of Rick's artwork for the commemorative Art Leelanau 2017.

The benefit is held annually to raise operating funds for programs offered throughout the year at the Old Art Building and also to help support and draw attention to the many artists who live either full or part time in Leelanau County. Artists help to underwrite the event by donating 40% of all art sales. Visual art, jewelry, ceramics and sculpture will be featured in the exhibit.

The exhibit will continue Saturday, July 22 through Wednesday, July 26 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Sunday hours are 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
