Five artists have been selected for the Fall Art Explored Series by the Royal Oak Commission for the Arts (ROCFA). Their pieces will join work by Brian Brook ( “A Really Big Guitar” at Fourth an Main) and Richard Gage ("Petal Parts" on the north side of the Royal Oak Public Library).
Art Explored is a program of the ROCFA, sponsored by the Arts, Beats, and Eats Foundation. Artists are chosen by ROCFA to have their work displayed in downtown Royal Oak for up to a year. If the pieces are sold while on display, ROCFA receives a 25 percent commission on the work to support the future of the program.
