My Town: New art center opens in Rockford

My Town: New art center opens in Rockford

ROCKFORD, Mich.—A new arts center is now open in Rockford.

Business owner Meg Frantz is temporarily donating the space at 52 Courtland until she makes a decision on what to do with the downtown facility.  Frantz also owns Bow Dacious Designs at 27 N. Main Street.

Creative Art Center-Rockford has named the facility "Arts Rockford!"  The building, which opened Sept. 2, includes an office, art gallery and space for meetings, events and potential art classes.

“Meg is a great friend and a huge supporter of the arts,” said Creative Art Center-Rockford Executive Director Linda Humbert.  “She called and asked me, ‘What can I do to help?’  Being able to open a temporary facility downtown right now is a wonderful opportunity for our organization to be able to connect with the community as we work through our separation with the city government.”
