The Oliver Art Center has spacious and atmospheric galleries as well as three rooms with lake views that are perfect for dinners, large meetings, birthday and anniversary gatherings, company meetings and holiday parties, high school open houses and many other events. The galleries have a capacity of approximately 120 people, seated, and our south-facing deck has views of Betsie Bay and Lake Michigan sunsets. The historic Coast Guard station building, fully renovated in 2012, is fully ADA accessible and LEED Platinum certified, which means that the building is committed to the highest global standards of energy efficiency and environmental awareness.
“Just wanted to check in post-rental and say how grateful we are for the Oliver Art Center. People were blown away by our venue and loved that they could be inside or out. Everything went very smoothly, and we really appreciate your flexibility and dealing with all of the in and out leading up to the event. The best part was being able to walk out and see the sunset with all of our guests! Everyone loved how walkable the event was.” -Elizabeth
“Your entire staff was so kind and helpful, and all of our guests loved the Art Center – it’s a beautiful venue. We have already been singing your praises and will continue to do so at every opportunity. Thanks for helping us plan a wonderful, joy-filled evening.” -Sharon
“Our guests kept coming up to us to say how impressed they were with the building and atmosphere. People could stroll to enjoy the art at off moments, or if they didn’t want to dance. We hardly had to decorate the building. Everything was just so classy. We rented housing next door, which was very convenient. It was just a perfect event.” -Melissa
“Our family had a huge reunion in July. Your service and attention were truly appreciated. The space is so unique, interesting and lovely – many relatives commented on how lovely the art center is.” -Joan
