Beginning Wednesday, November 18, the Saugatuck Center for the Arts will be closed to the public until December 8th in order to comply with the newest restrictions set forward by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
Due to these mandates, all in-person events at the SCA, including the Winter’s Eve Market & Holiday Market will be cancelled. At this point, we are uncertain if we will be able to reschedule these events for this year.
We know that you were really counting on us to help you out with your holiday shopping, so don’t worry – we’ve still got you covered. Even though you can’t shop with our vendors in person this holiday season, you can still support local and buy online! We have put together a guide (below) to all of our vendor’s virtual stores so you can still find those unique, beautiful gifts for your friends and families.
Plus, art has always been an escape when you need a break, and that’s still the case. If you want to support the SCA and the Saugatuck/Douglas community, here’s a few ways to continue to do so, even through the pause.
Online and Unplugged & Post Show Q&A
Join Emmy Winning, Tony and Golden Globe Nominated actor Jeff Daniels for an intimate live streamed concert on December 16th full of original music, stellar guitar work, and stories from his long career.
And a BIG BONUS – a live Q&A session will follow the performance!
Megan Altieri’s Sonder exhibit shares the profound realization that everyone, including strangers passing by on the street, has a life as vivid and complex as one’s own. Though social distancing may keep us apart, you can still look at the world through someone else’s lens by exploring this exhibit virtually.
This is a challenging time, but we’ll hold tightly to the things that make the SCA what it is, and this community what it is. We’ll focus on empathy, compassion, and creative curiosity. We’re all in this together. Stay safe and be well.
