Bus Trip: An Artful Day in Saugatuck

Join us as we discover all the creativity Saugatuck has to offer! We’ll begin by stopping at Express Yourself Art Barn, a historic barn from 1880 transformed into a community art studio that offers mosaicking, ceramics, painting and more. Choose from a variety of fun projects to work on. Then we’ll head to Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist Residencies for lunch on their beautiful 115-acre campus, surrounded by pristine forest and dunes. After lunch, we’ll take a guided tour with the campus director to learn more about Ox-Bow’s history, offerings and surrounding environment. We’ll finish the trip by heading to downtown Saugatuck to enjoy a variety of small galleries, public art, shopping and dinner on your own. Meijer Gardens staff will offer an optional guided walking tour of outdoor works of art in the downtown area—or feel free to use this time to shop and explore at your leisure. Fee includes bus transportation, snack, lunch, guided tours and art activity, and all gratuities.
