The 117 Gallery provides a platform for the community to engage with regional, national, and international artists.
The 117 Gallery hosts a range of exhibitions throughout the year and strives to create meaningful experiences in which artists and ideas converge. Both juried and curated, our exhibitions present an ongoing opportunity for artists to submit their work as well as a platform to strengthen public appreciation of contemporary art through exhibitions, education, and community exchange.
Location: Ashley Street, near the intersection with Liberty, in downtown Ann Arbor
The Aquarium is a micro gallery that hosts ten exhibitions annually. The gallery is comprised of a large window space measuring approximately 6′ x 6′ x 1′ located near the corner of Ashley and Liberty streets in downtown Ann Arbor. The mission of the Aquarium is to showcase site-specific installations. Artists are invited to fill the gallery in its entirety, and create a work of art that can engage with a street-level audience. Initial support for the Aquarium Gallery was generously provided by the Ann Arbor Awesome Foundation.
