Quite a few years ago, a small group of art lovers and makers launched a local art group in Milford. Through expanding connections and enthusiasm, the VFAA has grown into a regional, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting fine arts in the Huron Valley area and linked to broader Michigan arts councils and venues.
The VFAA has been characterized as welcoming and encouraging. It is both personal and committed to providing art and creative service to the wider community. Art careers and art experiences for all ages and levels of involvement have been inspired from experiences and due to the support from members and sponsors.
General Meetings - VFAA meetings, including the exciting Guest Artist Program, take place on the 4th Wednesday evening of each month: 7:30 - 9:00. Public welcome!
Another Fine Artist Show - interpretation and expressions of Milford or the surrounding area. Come by and see!
Stop by the SHAC through August - there may be something you want to take home.
