The Dow family plays a vital role in the development of Interlochen’s art facilities
The Dow family’s commitment to the arts extends far beyond Midland – about 120 miles northwest, to be exact. This year, the Interlochen Center for the Arts celebrates the completion of its 30-year master plan for its campus, which has benefited greatly from the foundations created in memory of the Dows.
The Dow family has been involved with Interlochen for more than 60 years, beginning with Alden B. Dow, who contributed to the center of fine arts’ first master plan. Alden, who was a trustee of Interlochen, led the design and development process for the facilities in the 1960s.
