Ice Dyed Tapestries And Shibori Quilts-A View From The Windows

I have mentioned the gorgeous setting of the Anderson Arts Center on Lake Michigan in previous posts. Anyone who visits the center can not forget the great views out the windows that add to the ambience.
This view is from “Mrs. Anderson’s bedroom” on the second floor of the Anderson Arts Center. wouldn’t you love to wake up to this view of the lake every morning and watch the changing seasons?
Another view of the lake and the rocks from a different window.
This view out the full length windows/doors is looking south.
This view is looking north at the Kemper Center which is now a county park. It was originally an Episcopalian girls boarding school. It now has many functions with banquet hall, a chapel and so much more.
As I write this post I can not forget the first visit to the Anderson Arts Center by someone who showed little interest in art. He was more than impressed with the show that was hanging at that time. But I’ll never forget his remark “I could live here!”
Who couldn’t live here if this were a private home and one had a staff to take care of it! But then you wouldn’t have all the art that is featured in the shows each year.
