Crooked Tree Arts Center

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 24 May 2017 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Crooked Tree Arts Center was founded in 1971 to sponsor and encourage activities in the arts for residents of Charlevoix and Emmet counties. It took less than ten years for the group to grow in stature to the point where it could purchase a building to serve as a center for arts endeavors in the region.

In 1978, the old United Methodist Church (constructed in 1890) located in downtown Petoskey became available at the price of $125,000. A majority of the members of the Executive Committee of CTAC voted to buy the building even though they had no money at all.

Through forty years of service and sound stewardship, the Crooked Tree Arts Center has developed an excellent visual and performing arts program, managed by a professional staff with guidance from the board of directors, in a building now recognized as one of the community’s more important assets.

We need more centres for arts, what with governments cutting funding to these classes. I like the colour of the building...I think.

Gradually, thanks to Steven, we get to know all the historical points of America.

Beautiful photo. But I think the branches in the upper left corner should not be in the frame.
