Fall Color Tour at the Art Park
Michigan Legacy Art Park is offering a special Guided Fall Color Tour on Sunday, October 16 at 2PM with Naturalist and Tour Guide Caitlin Chism to experience fall colors in the Art Park along with two new pieces of artwork to enjoy! Hiking the Art Park’s 30-acre hardwood forest is a great way to experience the beauty of the changing seasons, as well as experience artwork that reflects the Michigan experience. Hikers will appreciate Chism’s expert insight on the natural environment of the park, including tree identification. In addition, hikers will be able to view two new pieces of artwork: Two Doors by Leslie Laskey and The Pine Cone Forest Community Project by Patricia Innis. Two Doors is a powder-coated steel sculpture that invites visitors to be curious, to come in close, peek through the pierced door, and see something new each time they peer through the frames. The Pinecone Forest is one of the largest of its kind as a community-created art installation made entirely of pinecones and string. It explores Michigan’s people and their connection to the forests of the state. This installation is temporary and will only be displayed through 2022 and early 2023. This tour is free with park admission: $5 per adult and free for children. We are a designated Blue Star Museum and offer complimentary admission to military families. Tours take approximately 1.5 hours along nearly two miles of rustic and hilly trails. Meet at the Art Park trailhead by 2PM on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2022.
