Dear Friends and Partners:
For almost 20 years, the HVCA has been a leader in the Huron Valley community, providing concerts, dance, art classes, school programs, gallery exhibitions, senior and children programs and an artist co-op for our community.
After some years in temporary quarters, the HVCA organization was privileged to receive a great offer from Highland Township. In 2002 the facility at 205 West Livingston Road became available, and township officials gave us the opportunity to use a portion of the building to create our own regional art center. With the help of gently-used office equipment we moved in and opened for business.
During our 15 years in the space, over 125,000 people have passed through our center to attend concerts, visit the gallery, take workshops, purchase beautiful art, or take a class. Thousands of hands have clapped, greeted friends, painted artworks, and tickled the piano keys in the pursuit of enjoying and learning about art.
Our building has recently been refurbished, receiving a fresh coat of paint, new carpeting and ceiling repairs. Unfortunately, our equipment, furnishings and technology are showing their age. We are hoping to upgrade those items for the next 125,000 people to enjoy, and so we are launching a 15/15 campaign to complete the project to refresh and renew
our space. Our goal is to raise $15,000 ($1,000 for each year in our center).
By having an updated space and a more pleasant atmosphere, we look forward to creating a “café like” experience. Here
artists, community members and families can come and enjoy a cup of coffee, use our free Wi-Fi, meet with friends, enjoy the artwork, come for a field trip or just relax in the space, listening to music or reading. Having more (and hopefully new) faces using the Art Center means more people exposed to both our award-winning programming and the arts in general.
New technology in our Art Shop will allow us to move from paper receipts to a point-of-sale system, helping us provide more efficient sales, track inventory for our artists, and provide seamless accounting practices. New technology in our offices will give us more time and resources to put toward programming and laying the foundation for the next 20 years of service to Huron Valley.
As you review our plans for HVCA’s future, we hope you will consider a monetary donation in support of a vibrant place to work, play and dream. We look forward to your visit.
