What is a Van Go Tour? 

HVCA is committed to art appreciation and education is evident in its Van Go Tours.  These tours which are scheduled on a monthly basis offer participants the opportunity to experience and visit artistic/cultural events and locations throughout Michigan. These tours, which include transportation and specialized guides, are targeted at those in our area who are either unable to attend cultural offerings due to age, inability to drive, and/or financial resources. These tours also provide a means for art enthusiasts to attend such events with others that share their passion. Examples of Van Go Tour locations include: the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science & Art, the Michigan Capitol & Historical Center Tour, Pine Lake Glassworks, a Pewabic Pottery Tour and Hands-on Workshop, tour of the Art Prize competition, and hands on workshops in area artist studios.
