Artcenter Traverse City, in collaboration with the Downtown Traverse City Association, is proud to present Art and the City, a series of events taking place in downtown Traverse City in August and September 2014. The series gives artists, community members and visitors a chance to see the city in a new, creative light. Here are some of the exciting events coming up:

Local artist Chase Hunt and friends create street art; this is a great opportunity to see artwork come alive before your very eyes!
