    The subject of the “Great American Dream” is explored through photographer Charles Mintz’s series, “Lustron Stories.” Lustron Corporation manufactured porcelain-baked, enamel-coated, all-steel houses between 1948 and 1950 in Columbus, Ohio. The kit homes were shipped-to-site and assembled by local contractors. Many of the homes are still in use today. This project set out to discover who lives in these homes now.

    This exhibit begins on Monday, September 27th at 11:00 AM and ends on Satursday, November 13th at 4:00 PM. The gallery hours for Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City are Tuesdays - Fridays from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

    Please note: We will be open on Monday, September 27th. We will be closed on Tuesday, November 2nd for Election Day.
