If you have had your head stuck in the sand over the last few years, you will no doubt be shocked to learn that the local economy is thriving again. And while not all sectors are growing, one area that is doing well is the one that seeks to elevate and celebrate the local brands made here in our state.
East Hills' Made in Michigan Day is a neighborhood business district's effort to showcase all things Michigan. And since I am a huge fan of what art has been able to make possible here in our state, I'm also pleased that these Michigan artists - Nora Faber, Royce Deans and Maggie Clifford-Bandstra – will all have brand new works on display for you to welcome into your home. In addition, these artists will be painting live in the gallery offering you a chance to meet and see how they produce their works of art.
So in an attempt to steer you in the right direction as you support our local economy, you are invited to start your Saturday journey with art made here by folks many of you may already know.
The entire street of Cherry will be popping all day with people walking about enjoying the benefits of spring in Michigan and what it has made possible for some of our artisans.
