MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD)ew - For more than 100 years, The Muskegon Museum of Art has been committed to fostering the life-long study and appreciation of the visual arts by strengthening, preserving, and exhibiting its collections; offering a wide range of traditional and contemporary exhibitions; stimulating learning and creativity through diverse public and educational programming; and enhancing community involvement and support in a safe, accessible, and welcoming environment. Several exhibitions help them welcome Spring and you are invited to come and see them for yourself. The works of Hughie Lee-Smith are collected in an exhibition called Meditations which is up through May 19. Hughie Lee-Smith spent nearly two decades in Detroit in the 1940s and 1950s and his art demonstrates an acute understanding of both the African American experience as well as the human condition in general. In an exhibit that will be up through May 26, nationally known illustrator/author and Muskegon native Laurie Quail Keller shares her whimsical, wacky, and funny illustrations from her best-selling books. Laurie Keller, Story Teller shows the creative process of Keller's zany tales, from beginning ideas and illustrations to final publication. The 31st Annual Muskegon Area Student Art Exhibition is up through April 28, too. Meet the artists receptions will be held April 9, 10 and 11 for students in elementary through high school and on Thursday, April 4, students from GVSU will put their artistic efforts on display. Enjoy poetry inspired by the works of art at the Muskegon Museum of Art accompanied by saxophone quartets between 5:30pm and 8pm. Thanks to Meijer, admission is always free on Thursdays.
