JPS ArtMoves / Testimonials

“Lifetime Eyecare really appreciates being a part of our community here in Jenison.  We believe in the importance of art and community, and this program allows us to give an opportunity to a young artist to be showcased in a busy office.  We have only just begun participating with the Jenison Art Moves program, but it’s something that both our staff and patients have really been impressed with. We selected a beautiful painting of an owl last year and we hung it up right in our patient waiting room. Patients have commented countless times on how beautiful the artwork is and how impressive it is that a student made it. There was even a young child who got his first pair of glasses and the first thing he said to me was, “OWL!” This program is a fantastic way to get businesses involved in promoting the next generation’s extraordinary talents and we are so excited to participate again this year.”

“We leased our first piece of art from the JPS ArtMoves this last year and were thrilled with it!  There was a large, diverse selection of art to choose from.  It is also interesting to read the artist bios when picking your piece.  Our patients at Arntson Chiropractic enjoyed the art and the idea behind supporting the school as well as the kids involved.  Looking forward to choosing next year’s art!!”

“Chemical Bank has found great value and joy in regularly participating in the Jenison Art Moves program. We have participated for over four years. Our employees enjoy reviewing the high quality artwork from all the different ages and styles. I enjoy attending the gala to interact with the artists and their families on a more intimate level. My customers stop to enjoy the piece and read the artist bio as they hang all year in my business. It represents the strong commitment Chemical Bank has to our public school system and the strong value art has for the greater community.”
