Phil Gilchrist is the Executive Director of the Anton Art Center.  The Anton Art Center is located in Mt. Clemens at a location that was originally a Carnegie Library, built in 1904.  Due to size constraints, the Library moved to a new location with the Art Center taking over in 1969.  
Over the past few decades, the Art Center has expanded while incorporating the historic nature of the original building.   Due to the generosity of Gebran and Suzanne Anton towards the expansion, the Center was renamed.
Its mission is to enrich and inspire people of all ages through the arts with a vision to build an open community around creative expression.  The galleries are almost exclusively local artists and it offers art classes and artist talks.  To learn more, go to
