Glen Arbor Shopping Near Glen Lake
Nestled between Lake Michigan and Big & Little Glen Lakes, in the heart of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, you’ll find Glen Arbor. It’s a quaint town with great shops, restaurants, hotels, resorts, and activities of all kinds during every season.

In 1983 local artists and art supporters Suzanne Wilson, Ananda and Ben Bricker, Midge Obata, Becky Thatcher, Frank and Barbara Siepker, and others pooled their ideas and energies to create an art organization. Some of them continue to be actively involved to this day and many other talented and dedicated individuals have joined to carry on and enlarge the original vision for the Glen Arbor Art Association.

If you are an area resident, either full time or during the summer, come and visit us in Glen Arbor.
