The general public is invited to come together to congratulate Ann, a Benzie County resident, on her monumental achievement.
446,850 votes were cast this year, and Ann was the top winner of the $200,000 prize. “Oliver Art Center has been so proud to exhibit Ann’s stunning works and to host her classes over the years,” said Executive Director Steve Brown. “We are excited that she won the grand prize this year and want to start celebrating her achievement with our entire community right away.”
The event is free and open to the public. There will be cake, light refreshments and Ann’s work on display.
Frankfort is about 50 minutes southwest of Traverse City, U.S.-31 to M-115 West.
