Collaborative Community Projects

Students observing Michigan Blue at Michigan Legacy Art Park

Discover the heart and soul of Michigan’s diverse spirit through our annual Collaborative Community Art Projects. Each project is a unique journey, weaving together individual stories and artistic expressions from across the state. From the emotional reflections of the “Stay Home, Stay Safe Mask Project” to the environmental connection of the “Pine Cone Forest,” our community initiatives foster connections through the shared language of art.
