Eye for Broadway

This program was initiated by Wharton Center and award winning Okemos Elementary art teacher Eric Staib and his colleague Julie Bellinger. Eye for Broadway is a Wharton Center initiative currently in its sixth year connecting local schools, students, visual arts, Broadway touring productions and Wharton Center patrons. Each year selected Broadway productions are represented by visual art displays in the Cobb Great Hall lobbies and are designed to enhance the Broadway experience within our community.
