A selection of some of the best works of The Michigan Water Color Society

with an emphasis on self-discovery and personal content, rather than technique alone. ​

Each year, the Michigan Water Color Society creates a show featuring 90 pieces of their member’s best works. To reach a larger audience, the show is divided into three separate exhibits which travel around Michigan. CMU is fortunate to be a venue for one of those exhibits.

CMU faculty members from the CMU Department of Art & Design 

present this collaborative effort. 

The collaborative process allows for creativity beyond that possible by an individual, past the limitations of our singular knowledge, memory and experience. Collaboration offers a chance to create a project that must utilize everyone's strength 

to create work that is risky, spirited and, often, unexpected.
