THE ART PARK IS OPEN!
The Park is fully open after a devastating June 9 windstorm that toppled many trees and damaged a few of our sculptures. Many more trees need to be removed and sculptures still need to be repaired, including the iconic “Five Needles.” Please consider making a donation to help us rebuild. Thank you for your continued support.
Discover for yourself the stories of Michigan’s cultural and natural history brought to life through art. Our 30-acre wooded preserve offers an art experience and hiking trail experience together that is uniquely northern Michigan.
The fifty-plus sculptures in our permanent collection, as well as our rotating exhibits and poetry stones, connect visitors to our shared cultural and natural history.
Hundreds of area students visit the art park on school field trips every day. Our Looking to Learn resources help teachers integrate the park trip with classroom learning in math, science, and history.
