If you’ve noticed artwork around downtown Highland as you drive by, you might be wondering who the artists are and why they’re being displayed.
Wonder no longer; c-ART (as in “see art”) is an innovative program that, for the third time, will bring high-quality reproductions from local artists to brighten Highland outdoor venues; the exhibit will be on display through mid-December.
The event is a partnership between Huron Valley Council for the Arts (HVCA) and the Highland Downtown Development Authority; it’s been popular with the public.
“Over the past three years, we have encouraged many residents and visitors to engage with art in the place they live, work, and play,” explained Sioux Trujillo, HVCA executive Director. “HVCA is excited to bring this curated outdoor experience to our community when going into museums and galleries is limited. Our hope is that this will allow families to see and experience artists that they may have never seen and inspire the community to find out more about them.”
Missy Dashevich, Executive Director of the Highland Downtown Development Authority (HDDA), added, “The Highland DDA is excited to be partnering with the HVCA to bring this exhibit once again to Highland. We advocate for our improvement in our area to encourage businesses, residents, and the public alike to want to be here.”
Dashevich added, ‘”We strive to create a sense of place, returning Highland Station to be the center of our community and a destination within the region. Part of our vision at the Highland DDA is to be an active place that promotes health, fitness, and an appreciation of the natural environment, as well as a center for the expression and enjoyment of the arts creating a place where people want to gather.”
