Art is alive and well and living in Alpena! 

Your support has helped Art in the Loft grow from a fledgling art gallery into a regional fine arts center over the past eight years. Thank you for enriching the quality of life in Northeast Michigan.

At a time when our country, our state and our region are in economic transition, many people are seeking the simple joy of creativity and connection with others. A strong arts and culture community can be a source of economic vitality and social enrichment, as we embark on a decade of transformation. During the past year, Art in the Loft has served as a catalyst for this kind of creative vitality and connection.

As Art in the Loft continues to grow, our goal for 2010 is to retain the many dedicated and talented volunteers we rely upon to operate, and to expand our small staff in order to increase our programming, extend our marketing outreach and seek federal grant funds in order to create yet more jobs.

We hope you will consider making a tax-deductible contribution to Art in the Loft. Gifts can now be made on our website, click here or in person at the Loft.

No gift is too small! A gift of any size can help to fund a new job, enrich a community, and ignite the spark of excitement that will light up a new year.

All of us at Art in the Loft thank you for your past support and wish you peace, health and happiness this new decade.

Susan Fitzpatrick, President                          Karen Bennett, Vice-President
