Thoughts from Richard Kooyman, Painter

As a working artist I find the Leelanau Community Cultural Center provides a great service to me and to the public in general. As a community-oriented art organization they work hard to engage their local community in arts programing that is both educational and entertaining. As a cultural center they also strive to help fulfill the needs and goals of the area artist community by providing exhibitions space, lectures, and educational opportunities for beginning and mature artists alike.

The Old Art Building, as it is affectionately called, is also important for its historical contribution to culture in the area. Now closing in on 100 years old they provide a long track record of local cultural engagement.

As an artist, my life would be less rich and my career as an artist more difficult without such a great arts organization.
