A special celebration of Gretchen Minnhaar


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – There’s a special art exhibition at Aquinas College that benefits women in art.  It’s a look inside the sketches of celebrated artist and architect, Gretchen Minnhaar, who helped design the Amway Grand Hotel. Gretchen passed away last year and this exhibition is inspired by her travels and her architectural training.

Today we have Gretchen’s husband, Dr. Luis Tomatis and Margaret Vega in studio with us.

>>> Take a look in the video above.

The sketches in the Aquinas gallery exhibit are for sale and all proceeds go toward the Gretchen Minnhaar Scholarship Fund for women in the Arts and Sciences.

The exhibit will be open until Friday, September 13.
