Since its inception in 1989, the Glen Arbor Art Association’s mission has been to further the arts in the Glen Lake area. Throughout its history, GAAA has striven to compliment this region’s natural assets by making Glen Arbor a place where the arts can flourish both for the fulfillment of artists and for the enjoyment of all. GAAA is dedicated to the concept that the arts are an integral part of a good life and the organization nurtures the arts in the community year-round.
Evolving from a shared desk in rented space in an artist’s studio, the GAAA has grown into a multi-faceted organization located in the heart of Glen Arbor. The current facility was made possible by the donation of the land and architectural services as well as a volunteer-driven fundraising effort and opened, debt-free, in 2002. Since then the GAAA has hosted increasing cultural activities: classes, exhibits, plays, concerts, after-school programs, artist talks and presentation, all providing year-round education and enrichment.
