Michigan Legacy Art Park Kicking off Summer with Drop-In Art Days

The Michigan Legacy Art Park is kicking off their summer season with Drop-In Art Days.

CraftsOn Saturdays and select Sundays until August 20, the Art Park will host an art activity from 10:30 to 1:30.

A variety of activities like pressed wildflower art, haiku stone poetry, and pine cone bird nests will be offered throughout the summer.

“A lot of times families will visit the Art Park and then find some inspiration,” said Community Engagement Manager Kerry Winkler. “Then we would work on pine cone mobiles or nests or pressed wildflower art.”

A special collective project called the Pine Cone Forest Project will be offered this summer.

Visitors are asked to create “pine cone trees” by tying cones to a 12 ft long piece of twine.

Each piece of twine will be hung like a curtain in the park this summer.

The Northwest Michigan Arts and Culture Network and the Benzie Sunshine Rotary Club provided grants for supplies for the Pine Cone Forest Project.
