Michigan Legacy Art Park was featured in Sculpture magazine’s blog Re:Sculpt. In it, the author highlights many of our park’s distinguishing features, including the clear recognition of the value of our education programs:
Mark me well when I enthusiastically hail this park as an educator’s dream. Along the paths are artist-benches, equipped with basic art supplies on hand for children (or anyone, really). During my visit, a small display of children’s art was on view at the park’s open-air learning center, all produced during a recent field trip. In several places, it appeared students created modest Goldsworthy-inspired earth art. Hemmingway Haunts, on permanent view, is actually a collaborative effort by Patricia Innes and local schoolchildren, and, with natural pigments, offers us ghostlike silhouettes representing characters from stories by Ernest Hemmingway, who once frequented the region.
