Fall into the Arts: IMPACT 2020

Updated: Dec 3, 2020

Each year the Arts Council of White Lake-Nuveen Center (ACWL-Nuveen) hosts Fall Into the Arts, a themed youth art exhibition featuring work from local school art programs. Opening on Saturday, November 7, this year's show will feature artwork from the ACWL-Nuveen Open Studio Program, Mona Shores High School, Montague High School, Montague Middle School, Oakridge High School, and Reeths-Puffer High School. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 concerns, we aren't able to have an in-person reception. However, we have created a slideshow of the exhibit, which you can watch below!

ACWL-Nuveen staff chose the theme 'IMPACT 2020' for FITA because this year has been unprecedented for a multitude of reasons: a contentious election, a global pandemic, mask mandates, calls for systemic changes to provide social justice, and overwhelming natural disasters due to climate change. Expressing concerns, opinions, and anxieties through art - whether it be visual art, music, dance, or poetry provides an excellent outlet for students to process the ever-changing current events broadcast on social media. The artwork in the exhibit this year makes it clear that today's youth has a lot to say!

The Fall into the Arts Exhibition also serves as a fundraiser for the participating schools' art program. We will be collecting donations in the ACWL-Nuveen gallery, as well as online, through our website. Donations will be collected by the ACWL-Nuveen and distributed to the art programs following the close of the exhibition.

Fall into the Arts: IMPACT 2020 will be on display in the ACWL-Nuveen exhibit space from November 7 through December 1. The gallery is open Tuesday - Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We encourage small, mask-wearing groups to visit the gallery and view the show during our open hours.

The Nuveen Center is accessible to all visitors–whatever their ability. Each room is wheelchair accessible, including classrooms and restroom. Guide animals are also welcome. Feel free to call us in advance of your visit so we can accommodate any special needs.
