Macomb County Artists:  Stand Up and Be Counted!

Macomb County Artists: Stand Up and Be Counted!

Artists who live, work or make art in Macomb County are needed to participate in a survey by the Anton Art Center, with funding from the Michigan Council for Art and Cultural Affairs (MCACA).

The aim of the survey is to find out how many artists live in Macomb County, and to find out how to promote them to the public as effectively as possible.

Macomb County artists are an underserved, unrecognized population. The Anton Art Center and MCACA hope the survey will change that. “As a community, artists need to support each other – and we need to work together to make sure that our work gets the recognition it deserves,” says digital artist Jason Quinlan of Mount Clemens.

The survey is brief, and takes about five minutes to complete. It’s available online at the Anton Art Center’s website, Paper copies of the survey are available from the Anton Art Center by calling 586-469-8666.

Surveys should be completed by March 15, 2009.
