“As an instructor at Olivet College, I am excited to facilitate this outreach into our region and to show the creativity of many students through their artwork,” said Don VanAuken, adjunct instructor of arts. “I also want to begin a dialogue with students, educators and parents on how the Arts Department at Olivet College can assist in the artistic and cultural vitality of our region, and to show how the visual arts can be a viable career choice for students.”
