Fountain Street Church offers a rich art and architectural history to its congregation and the greater West Michigan community. The Art Committee is the conservator of this heritage. It builds on Fountain Street's tradition of nurture and appreciation for the artistic, cultural, and intellectual fruits of the human spirit in concert with the mission and vision of our church. The Committee stages art exhibits in the Keeler Gallery by artists in a variety of media. The objective is to enlighten the spirits of our diverse congregation and serve as an outreach to the greater West Michigan community.
History and Art: "Building on the Legacy"
To recognize the 150th Anniversary of Fountain Street Church, the Art Committee prepared special exhibits in 2019. Collectively titled “The Only Church with a History Like This,” these exhibits present artwork along with an historical timeline of photographs and documents associated with three periods:
• “The First 75 Years” covering the period 1869 through 1944;
• “Reviving The Liberal Legacy: The Littlefair Years” covering the period from 1944 through 1978; and,
• “Building on the Legacy” covering the period from 1979 to the present.
Opening on Sunday September 22nd, “Building on the Legacy” will include artwork by congregants and artists associated with FSC since 1979. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, September 22nd in the Keeler Lounge after the 11:00AM service.
