Kurtis T. Wilder, an attorney at Detroit-based Butzel Long, has been elected chair of the Interlochen Center for the Arts Board of Trustees.
“It is a highlight to serve Interlochen in this leadership role,” says Wilder. “Interlochen offers immense enrichment opportunities for students to discover new interests and talents. Interlochen brings students together from across the globe for the summer Arts Camp and the Arts Academy for an unmatched educational experience that will forever change their lives.”
As a shareholder with Butzel Long, Wilder concentrates his practice in litigation, appeals, and mediation and facilitation. He served on the Michigan Supreme Court after he was appointed by former Gov. Rick Snyder on May 9, 2017. He previously served on the Michigan Court of Appeals and as a judge of the Washtenaw County Trial Court.
Interlochen was founded in 1928 and is in northwest lower Michigan. Each year, thousands of artists and arts patrons visit to experience leading educational and cultural opportunities. Students study music, theatre, visual arts, film, creative writing, and dance guided by faculty and guest artists.
