New Fall Happenings at Ox-Bow

After 96 years as a summer school of art, Ox-Bow announced its inaugural fall program starting this September. With winterized facilities, Ox-Bow offers quality programming throughout the year. As a result, students, faculty, and Professional Artists in Residence can enjoy Ox-Bow's inspirational landscape well into fall. Many of the workshops are shown in the calendar above. Come stay at Wickwood and experience Ox-Bow.

  

Remember our calendar doesn't stop here! Saugatuck and Douglas are wonderfully mild as Indian Summer becomes Fall. Then the magic of the Holidays descends ... creating an old fashioned Christmas card with twinkling lights, Dickens, horse drawn carriages and fireworks for New Year!! Be sure to make your Fall and Holiday reservations at the Inn soon ... www.wickwoodinn.com
