Thirty years ago, a handful of enthusiastic individuals shared a love for the arts and a vision for supporting the arts and artists in the White Lake area. Their ideas found fertile ground here, and the Arts Council of White Lake took hold quickly!
Its first summer concert series was well received and became an annual tradition that continues to draw hundreds of residents and visitors. Children’s arts programs, that were developed to supplement dwindling school budgets, blossomed into classes and lectures in all aspects of the arts for all ages and all abilities. The gallery hosts year-round arts exhibitions and juried competitions. Public performances of theater and music include an annual star-studded classical music festival.
The Arts Council also awards grants and scholarships to nurture the White Lake community’s aspiring artists and performers. And don’t you love the imaginative art that’s being placed along the Hart-Montague Bicycle Trail! It’s an Arts Council project!
As we celebrate the beginning of the ACWL’s fourth decade, we are embarking on a three-year $1 million endowment campaign. Its success will ensure a steady flow of funding to the Council year after year, so that all the programs and activities you enjoy now will continue for many more decades!
We are deeply grateful to John Hilt who launched the campaign with an initial gift of $100,000 from the name of fund and a commitment to match all contributions up to $500,000! WOW! That means the value of your donation to the Endowment Fund is automatically doubled! Please join with us and give a gift to the Arts Council of White Lake’s Endowment Fund so together we can… Love The Arts…Forever!
