Swirl is a monthly wine-tasting with music and the most recent art exhibit on display. Each month the Arts Center partners with local wine purveyors, restaurants and performers to put on an evening of culture and entertainment for the community. Three exhibits will be open including the 35th Annual Juried Fine Arts, the Little Traverse Bay Quilter’s Guild Exhibit, and “Back to School: CTAC Instructors and their Students” during the October Swirl.
