Take a moment to rest and reflect on one of six benches designed by Michigan artists for the Art Park.
Visitors to the park are greeted by a temporary exhibit in the Art Park parking area. These sculptures have been selected by a jury from a public call for entries.
Artists in Residence
Each summer, resident artists bring both their talents and wisdom to the park, creating new works for our collection, as well as leading interpretive workshops, open studio sessions and more.
In among the trails and trees are thirty poetry stones. As you hike the park, stop to consider each one. See if you can find them all.
The goals of the poetry stone program are to to present poetry in nature; feature poetry inspired by aspects Michigan history, environment and/or culture; and provide a forum for literary arts with an emphasis on quality and diversity.
