Monroe Art League
was founded in September of 1959 by a group of local
artists interested in encouraging artistic talent and appreciation of
fine art in the community. Those goals
Our mission is to
"promote fine art
As membership grew, the organization hosted exhibitions in various venues, both indoors and out.
Some art related activities open to the public were adult classes, children's classes, and children's exhibitions, with scholarships awarded to high school students.
Many member exhibitions are currently presented in conjunction with various community events, and each Fall we sponsor a Members Only Juried Show, held at the Ellis Library and Reference Center. The public is invited to view the work submitted for the show.
Art in the Community: Currently, members exhibit their art work in local businesses and public buildings, rotating both artwork and venues. Many such exhibits are ongoing and are called "Spot Shows". The Community Foundation, Monroe Mental Health facility, and the United Way office host exhibits, as well as several Monroe Bank and Trust offices and selected Monroe County branch libraries and additional businesses. The exhibits run for a period of three months.
Much of the work exhibited is available for sale.
The Monroe Art League meets the fourth Tuesday of each
month at 6:00 p.m., at the United Way
building, 216 N. Monroe St, Monroe, MI.
The Monroe area is fortunate to have many talented artists in the community and we invite all artists in Monroe and surrounding area to join us.
Visitors and new members are always welcome.
