Susan Fitzsimmons overtakes the Auditorium Lobby Space with Adaptations, greatly influenced by technology and cultural conditions.

The United Way Chair Project

JUL 29 - SEP 4, 2022

United Way of Midland County presents The Chair Project – an art exhibition designed to build awareness around the issues our family, friends, co-workers and neighbors face each and every day.

Their goal is to share impact stories in a unique and moving way. Each chair, created and painted by local artists, tells a real story of someone in our community, showing the struggle that was faced and the success that was found. Each story represents one of United Way’s fifteen issue areas that align with Youth Success, Health and Household Stability.

To meet the artists and learn more about the exhibition, visit:

SEP 24 - DEC 31, 2022
Artist Reception: SAT, OCT 1 / 5:30 - 7:30 PM

We salute the Studio School Faculty for providing a place of growth and sharing their talent with their students.
