Highlight Hollywood supports all venues of the entertainment industry, from politics to sports to cinema to fine arts. This year, we again have the exclusive rights to introduce our readers to the 25 Best Museums And Galleries In America, as designated by the American Art Awards. The impressive AAA board, headed by president Thom Bierdz, chooses only one museum or gallery per state per year. Their selections are based on years established, industry reputation, location, size, socially relevant exhibits, motivational and educational programs, represented artists as well as artist, client and visitor references.
Bierdz explains, “In the past, American Art Awards has honored well over a hundred museums and galleries. We study thousands each year and the Art Leaders Gallery stands out above all in Michigan this year. Their 10,000 square foot show room is filled with original oil paintings, limited editions, photography, sculptures, and more. Over 24 years they have earned an impeccable reputation and are one of the leading residential and corporate art dealers in the state. They were voted “Best Fine Art Gallery” three years in a row by the West Bloomfield Township, Jewish News (2014), and Detroit A List (2015).
