Educators can use the sculptures in the Art Park as inspirational starting points for the study of topics in art, history, geography, science, language arts, and environmental studies. Michigan Legacy Art Park helps teachers achieve their academic goals by linking the sculptures in the curriculum through these programs and activities:
Each fall and spring, teachers from area schools bring their students on field trips to the Art Park – a place where their textbooks spring to life through the sculptures they discover while exploring nature. Learn More About Field Trips
