The Arts Market continues in downtown Mt. Pleasant amid rain showers.
On August 13 and 14, For Art’s Sake is hosting an event where mid-Michigan artists from all mediums can exhibit and sell their work at the intersection of Main and Broadway.
Over 60 artists and creators have registered to participate in the event, with vendor fees and other marketplace funds going to support Club Create. Club Create is a joint program between Art Reach of Mid Michigan and Michigan Arts Access that provides arts education opportunities for people with disabilities.
The event hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Live music and other children’s activities were planned for the event, but on Saturday due to rainstorms some activities were suspended while some concerts continued. The sellers were still able to exhibit and sell their creations despite the rain.
According to the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids, Saturday’s forecast called for showers and a chance of thunderstorms throughout the day and evening, with an 80 percent chance of precipitation.
