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.
