I attended the workshop at the Detroit Historical Museum and presented information on behalf of ArtServe. I met Jennifer, the new director of The Art Center in Macomb. I also had the honor of meeting a young businessman named Bobby Johnson who is working along with his wife to get a magazine called Detroit Fashion Pages (http://www.detroitfashionpages.com/) off the ground. They are considering applying for nonprofit status and using the magazine as an educational resource for fashion-minded youth and also as a communication tool where a spotlight can be shown on local artists and their products.

I attended the workshop at the Grand Rapids Art Museum and presented on behalf of ArtServe. A man working with the Huron Valley Arts Council was worried about ArtServe's new direction and voiced this during my presentation. We talked afterward and I let him know that we are still offering support for arts & cultural organizations through various resources and that he should be keeping an eye out to take advantage of programming as we begin to roll it out. He left happy and I was happy to put his fears at ease.
