This fall, help forge a future for Ox-Bow by joining us for one, or all, of our Field of Vision celebrations: October 1, 2, and 3. Each evening we will celebrate important friends and supporters of Ox-Bow as we mark our 110th anniversary nurturing contemporary art in West Michigan. Ox-Bow is the longest running Summer art school in the United States, and for over 110 years our campus has been home to countless artists from around the country and the world, carving out a unique place for Michigan and the Midwest in the history of art. This year we celebrate our past and start forging our future. We hope you will be there!

Silent auction featuring Ox-Bow alumni, faculty and experiences goes live in September! New menu, programming and live auction offerings each night. All attendees will receive a fresh hot glass gift from the hot shop! Suggested Attire: Cozy Chic & Fancy Flannel

Guests will be seated with their party only, with tables spaced generously at a distance of 6' or more across the heated area for safety. Food is prepared and served by staff wearing PPO, with limited contact.  Programming will take place outdoors and in our open-air studios. Any indoor buildings will have a limited capacity.
