Carol and Mike Buller Exhibition PhotographyJoin us for an exhibition featuring the works of husband and wife photographers and travelers Carol and Mike Buller. Their photography captures the places they’ve explored, as well as the beauty and decline of everyday objects. They met as students at Oakland University and shared careers in education, Carol as “Frau Buller” teaching German and Mike as a media specialist/librarian. They have enjoyed photography throughout their 45 years together. The synergy between them adds to the beauty of everything they experience together. Enjoy the exhibit of their work as a window into the world around and within us. On exhibit through 10/9.

John Pratt Mosaic House Tour
Dates: 08/30/2015, Times: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tucked into a wooded lot, an intriguing little house, covered in brilliantly colored mosaic murals, has stories to tell. The creator of the murals, John Pratt, was an artist who in mid-life retreated into a lonely world of paranoid schizophrenia. Friends, fellow artists, counselors and neighbors encouraged his return to the more joyful and expressive world of art. In the process of piecing his life back together, John discovered that the exterior walls of his childhood home provided an ideal setting for a series of magnificent murals that represented his illness, his re-discovered zest for living, and his beliefs about tolerance and unconditional love.

Come hear the stories and take the opportunity to see John Pratt’s Mosaic House exactly as he created it! Join the scheduled Sundays, or schedule a tour with your own group. Public events are scheduled for the following Sundays at 2:00 pm: August 30, September 13 & October 11. $5
