The Saugatuck Center for the Arts is West Michigan’s lakeshore destination for experiencing the joy of professional theater and music, life-changing education for children and adults, and substantive dialogue. We are a community asset, a collaborative partner, and are deeply committed to building a stronger, more vibrant regional arts & cultural landscape.
Nestled along the lakeshore
The Saugatuck Center for the Arts curates and hosts art exhibitions of significant community value, designed to provoke thought, broaden understanding of the world and spark curiosity and imagination. Emerging and established artists of regional and national recognition exhibit their work in our gallery.
The SCA displays a variety of exhibitions representing both traditional and innovative techniques, media, and content, with the intent of appealing to diverse audiences. As a non-profit art center, our gallery is educationally driven.

Works by Rebecca Green, Ginnie Hsu, Hillery Sproatt and Libby Vanderploeg
Storied Drawing brings together four talented young artists and visual story-tellers whose drawing-based works range from GIF’s, interactive illustration (featuring conductive ink!) and animation to painting and ceramics. The exhibit offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into each of their diverse practices, as well as their unique cross-disciplinary applications that include children’s books, advertising, textiles, and fabrics.
Upcoming Corridor Exhibit
We all have our vices, whether its wifi, Netflix, or a big closet full of winter jackets. We also have our mental escapes; a cabin in the woods, a tandem bike, or a canoe. These are the ways we unplug – we attempt to be a little wild, and get rooted with something a bit dustier and rougher on the edges. Wild Society imagines our lives in an anthropomorphic way, playfully looking at the ways we try to get back to our roots.
