ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
The Ann Hall Artist-in-Residence summer program was begun in the summer of 2006. This program, a long-held goal of the Leelanau Community Cultural Center, was made possible by a special gift from the Hall family. The Halls, who have been Leland summer residents for years, were prompted to fund this position for the first 3 years, following the unexpected death of Ann Hall, a gifted artist. The Artist-in-Residence will continue in 2010 with the generous support from donations to this program.
This fund supports the day to day operations of The Old Art Building.
The Lizzy Oliver Scholarship Fund was established by the Oliver family in memory Lizzy Oliver. The funds are made available for individuals who wish to take classes, but are not be able to afford the total cost. Allowing those with an artistic interest to be involved with LCCC programs regardless of their financial constraints.
