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, our gallery space provides a unique hub for impactful conversations, outreach, classes and film. 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.

As an arts center dedicated to community engagement and educational programming, our gallery is a space for exploration and inquiry. Our exhibits inspire educational programs designed to be meaningful to viewers of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. The SCA is committed to deepening the understanding of the visual arts through parallel educational programming associated with our exhibits via gallery tours, artist conversations, student outreach, film, workshops, classes, gallery text and exhibit brochures.
