North of the 45th Reception

NMU Logo on bricks

DeVos Art Museum

North of the 45th is an annual juried exhibition of artists living in the geographical area north of the 45th parallel in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. This line, known as the halfway point between the equator and the north pole, is often associated with being “up north.” The Exhibition highlights artists living in this upper Midwest region from rural and urban areas.

Michael Andrews is the selected juror for the 2023 North of the 45th exhibition. Curiosity drives Andrews’ expansive and multi-specialized practice in the arts. An artist and educator, Andrews’ experience stems from working in college level art schools, artist residencies, nonprofits, small business incubators, and design-focused retail. Andrews earned a BFA from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art.

Phone Photography Workshop

Faculty Events

DeVos Art Museum

Your phone camera can capture a large amount of data and with a few steps, you can manipulate the data to your liking, not just the standard settings being used by the default software. In this workshop we will look at several tools that can nondestructively adjust that data, providing flexibility. Suggestions for making prints will also be discussed.

This is a free event and open to the public. Located in room 165 of the Art & Design building.
