The Ramsdell’s Community Art2 Project

Stuff We Love
By Craig Manning | Sept. 24, 2022

One great joy of childhood is getting creative in art class and then seeing your work proudly displayed in your school hallways. Similar opportunities don’t come along very often in adulthood, but the Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts in Manistee is offering one this fall. The Ramsdell’s Community Art2 project invites community members to turn blank 6-by-6-inch canvas “squares” into unique pieces of art, which will then be combined into a “canvas wall” set to be exhibited at The Ramsdell from Nov. 17 to Dec. 18. Canvases are $5 for two or $10 for four and can be picked up at the Ramsdell Mondays through Fridays between 10am and 5pm. Each piece will also be available for purchase during the exhibit. All proceeds support The Ramsdell’s “grassroots programs,” including school field trips, workshops, and theater camps. Note that participants must return their squares to The Ramsdell by Saturday, Oct. 29, at 3pm. Register online at
