A Matter of Taste: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter
by Women's Caucus for Art Michigan
n display through October 25, 2014

"A Matter of Taste: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter" will include two and three dimensional pieces that display the artists' impressions, expressions and metaphorical interpretations of “taste” and how it moves through our lives and our world. The exhibit will include art that matches this theme in both a representational and abstract manner.

Women’s Caucus for Art Michigan (WCA) is a non-profit national organization with over 50 professional artists as members. Operating as a volunteer organization, members exhibit their work in several different shows and exhibition spaces throughout the year. The objective of the group is to provide networking, mentorship and creative challenges to assist members to continually improve the quality of their work.

Courage in Action:
Stories of Michigan Women in the Civil Rights Movement

Currently on exhibit

Discover the stories of Michigan Women's Hall of Fame inductees Grace Lee Boggs, Nellie Cuellar, Waunetta Dominic, Rosa Slade Gragg, Viola Liuzzo, and Rosa Parks-- all of whom worked towards improvements in civil rights. They came from different backgrounds and acted in different ways-- some in their own communities, some on the national level-- and their stories serve as inspiration for the next generation of civil rights leaders.

Thank you to our major sponsors: Doctor's Approach Dermatology & Med Spa, Dr. C.P. Lee, Meijer, and Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe

Not Just a Man's War:
Michigan Women and the Civil War

Currently on exhibit

In celebration of the Civil War sesquicentennial come discover what the War meant for the women of the state. Life in Michigan changed when men left to fight in the Civil War. In addition to their regular duties, the women who remained at home assumed responsibilities previously held by men while sending supplies to support soldiers far from home. Other Michigan women moved to the frontline, serving in hospitals and -- for some bold women--even on battlefields.

When Lincoln declared "Thank God for Michigan!" upon the arrival of the first regiment from a western state, he could not have anticipated all of the sacrifices and changes the women of Michigan would face.
