The definition of community is: a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interest and goals. The Riverside Arts Center believes in community. We believe in Ypsilanti. This week our first scholarship student began drawing classes. He was brought to our attention by the Superintendent of Ypsilanti Community Schools. He wants to be a cartoonist so the RAC is helping him make that dream possible. Community.

Last night in Ypsilanti there was a fire at 209 Pearl Street. FirefightersCommunity from Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti rushed to the scene. Luckily no one was hurt but now there are people who are homeless, who have lost everything. Please donate to the American Red Cross at www.redcross.org/mi/ann-arbor. If you don’t have extra money to give, donate clothes or blankets or your time. Community.

One of the things I love about Ypsilanti is the community. I feel like we are all in this together. I’m proud to be the Director of the RAC and a member of this wonderful community – after all helping each other is really what it’s all about.

The visitors to the art gallery cast their votes throughout the month of August as they visited the Art Goes Digital exhibit.  And the winning pieces are:  Riverside Park and Life.

Hex Exhibit

In the Off Center

Sept 5 – 26, 2014

Opening Reception: Sept 5, 6-9 pm
During First Friday Ypsilanti

 

For the month of September, participating venues of First Fridays Ypsilanti have been encouraged to show work involving honey bees.

Ypsilanti Art Incubator’s spin on this idea has manifested as our next exhibition, titled HEX.  The artwork in HEX focuses on the hexagon — the foundational key within the honeycomb.

Participating artists bring together sculptural, 2-D, and installation works that incorporate, contain, or reference hexagons and/or their relationship to the honey bee.

Follow this exhibit on the Hex Facebook Event.
