This May marks my first year as President of Ann Arbor Women Artists. I wanted to revive the tradition our group had of holding a Biennial Art Show for the Board. AAWA has many activities, and our board members do a lot of work for our community of artists. I was fortunate to find a beautiful venue on the campus of the University of Michigan, The Willis Ward Lounge. This room was just dedicated to former student athlete Willis Ward while our exhibition is up. Mr. Ward was an outstanding football player who roomed with Gerald Ford (to be the 38th President of the United States). There was a racial controversy with the game involving Georigia Tech in 1934.

If you live in Ann Arbor, stop by and see our show. It will be up until June 18.
