What does it mean to be a member?
The Thornapple Arts Council always welcomes new members. What does that mean, exactly? You can choose your level of membership based on how much you want to donate to the organization. With each level of membership comes additional perks.
Where does your money go?
The Thornapple Arts Council Board of Directors and staff work very hard to be good stewards of the financial contributions we receive from our community members. Here is what your money did in 2011:

- Provided $1,400 in financial support to five Barry County artists who participated in ArtPrize.
