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.
The upcoming collaborative artwork invites students and adults to create rain-related images on wooden tree rounds.
Description: A collaborative project born out of a windstorm’s aftermath, celebrating Michigan’s natural beauty and resilience through painted wooden rounds.
