The Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center is located in downtown Lansing, and has been a part of the Lansing community for 50 years. Throughout that time, it has changed locations and staff, but one of its most long-standing traditions has been going on for over three decades. This tradition is known as the Art Scholarship Alert, or ASA. It is a juried competition that exhibits the work of high school students from nine counties across Michigan, and awards winners financial assistance as well as recognition for their achievements in the arts. According to the art gallery’s website it has awarded collectively $106,000 to young artists in the area.
