Art Wave through the Great Lakes Bay Region

ArtWave is a multi-year, cross-county promotional campaign, sponsored by the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance Arts & Entertainment Council, to raise awareness about arts and entertainment options throughout Bay, Isabella, Midland and Saginaw Counties.

To demonstrate the wealth and variety of art and entertainment assets in the Great Lakes Bay Region, ArtWave encourages regional collaboration as well as the pooling of resources. Each month, ArtWave spotlights events and activities in one of the counties in our Region, promoting awareness and encouraging everyone that great arts and entertainment–from museum exhibits to sporting events–can be found right here.

A grant in support of ArtWave was recently awarded to the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance from the Barbara A. Bissot Fund, a community impact fund of the Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation.

The mission of the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance is to encourage, support and celebrate regional collaboration and initiatives to help improve economic vitality and quality of life in the Great Lakes Bay Region. The ArtWave campaign demonstrates that a quality place to live is a place with a thriving economy and flourishing art and entertainment opportunities.

From concerts in the park, to sidewalk art fairs, to festivals that celebrate our rich heritage and cultures, ArtWave celebrates art and entertainment opportunities right here in our region.
