The Anton Art Center is a strong advocate for artists and has been housed in the historic Carnegie Library Building in downtown Mount Clemens since 1969. It's the only facility of its kind in Macomb County. The center holds monthly exhibitions ranging from juried statewide competitions to invitational and student shows.

Money raised during the ArtParty helps the center continue to keep a full schedule of art classes and exhibitions, outreach and opportunities for artists.

Admission is free and open to the public!
