We serve as a catalyst for community development through quality
Join us for monthly fine art exhibitions featuring emerging and established Michigan artists working in a wide range of mediums and styles.
Each August, MICA transforms the streets of Lansing’s Old Town into a venue for one of the largest, most diverse, and longest-running jazz festivals in Michigan.
Each September, Michigan BluesFest brings top local, regional and international acts, plus thousands of fans, together to celebrate the Blues.
Check out our current exhibition, submit your artwork or see our space guidelines for rental.
TURNER PARK PLACE
This joint project served as a model, anchor and spark for the redevelopment of Old Town by early urban pioneers.
SECOND SHIFT FILM

Each Valentine’s Day weekend, MICA curates an afternoon of love-themed poetry, music and theatrical acts from across the country.
