The historic Lansing River Trail will soon feature a new public art installation extending for 3.5 miles, with the help of a crowdfunding campaign, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and the Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center in partnership with the city of Lansing’s Parks and Recreation Department. The campaign is being offered through Michigan-based crowdfunding platform Patronicity.
“Unique projects like the ARTpath 2018 River Trail art installation redefine spaces and builds vibrancy in inactive places,” said MEDC Senior Vice President of Community Development Katharine Czarnecki.
During the summer of 2018, the Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center will partner with Lansing’s Parks and Recreation to provide a public art display in 10 sites featured along the historic Lansing River Trail.
This temporary, site-specific project will connect 3.5 miles of public art sites while creating awareness and enhancing cultural attraction.
Public Spaces Community Places is a collaborative effort of the MEDC, the Michigan Municipal League and Patronicity, in which local residents can use crowdfunding to be part of the development of strategic projects in their communities and be backed with a matching grant from MEDC.
