Artists from Saugatuck-Douglas support Mt. Baldhead Challenge and create Art prizes and graphics as seen above done by artist James Brandess of Saugatuck.

For more than a century, the inspiring beauty of the Saugatuck-Douglas area has attracted artists and patrons of fine arts. The proliferation of galleries and artist studios, the street art fairs, and many diverse do-it-yourself art opportunities have built its reputation as the Art Coast of Michigan.

From lively clusters of downtown galleries, to the secluded campus of Ox-Bow School of Art and the intriguing array of artist studios dotting the neighboring countryside, connoisseurs of creativity find a congenial arts haven delightful to explore.
