Little information regarding Michigan Artistic Creation exists, but I did discover that the company was founded by Mario and Nancy Viviani and that they are still in operation today. As seen on the example below, they were a manufacturer of chalkware products of the highest quality. Michigan Artistic Creation may have been tied to the Michigan Composition Lamp Co.
One of the most beautiful chalkware TV lamps I've seen, this Madonna and Child by Michigan Artistic Creation is dated 1958. Photos courtesy of Mama D from Browerville, Minnesota.
