International Sculpture Day
Saturday April 28 · 2018
Here’s the perfect excuse to get outdoors and enjoy Michigan Legacy Art Park this spring!
9:00am – Stewardship Day
Lend a hand to get the park looking beautiful for the season! Bring a friend, a rake, gloves or tarps. There are a variety of ways to help out for all physical ability levels.
It is an excellent chance to engage sculpture in a unique way, while participating in the mission of Michigan Legacy Art Park.
2:00pm – Artists + Artists Tour
Artistic Director, Kaz McCue will lead the way on this special tour designed for artists.
We will be joined by several other MLAP “Legacy” artists who will each share and answer questions about the processes and inspiration behind their pieces in our collection: Sergio Degiusti, Dewey Blocksma, Bill Allen, David Petrakovitz, Patricia Innis, and Eric Troffkin.
Artists (from aspiring to established), arts professionals and art lovers are all invited and strongly encouraged to attend this tour.
This is an excellent opportunity for university or graduate sculpture programs to spend a day gleaning decades of experienced wisdom from these artists. If you are an arts educator who would like to bring a group of students for this tour, please contact Kaz McCue for details.
5:00pm – Artists Mixer at Iron Fish
Following the artists’ tour, plan to spend some good time making new friends at Iron Fish Distillery. It’s a great chance to get to know other artists from around Michigan, share stories and dream up new collaborations.
Iron Fish Distillery is Michigan’s first working farm solely dedicated to the practice of distilling small-batch craft spirits. It has been named a 2018 “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch” and their Michigan Woodland Gin was recognized as one of the top spirits in the world by Cigar & Spirit magazine. Plus they are supporters of Michigan Legacy Art Park!
