 Sculptures will be located along a route connecting the east and west sides of East Jordan, MI. on city property. An attractive new municipal walkway connects the two parts of the city where the Jordan River empties into Lake Charlevoix. This project has added access to pedestrian, bicycle and motorized vehicle traffic. Sculptures will be placed along this pathway and into the downtown area. The art walk is currently anchored by a city park on the west side river estuary and by the municipal harbor/concert shell on the east side. We will add 6-8 sculptures in 2023 to extend the walk.

The sculptures will be in place for 3 years (June 15, 2023-June 2026) and may be for sale by the artist with a 20% commission to the committee. If sold, the work of art will remain in place until the end of the exhibit (or be replaced with another sculpture by the artist with approval of the committee) There is a stipend of $600 for the artists selected for the exhibit. Artists are responsible for installing/ deinstalling their art works. Concrete pads will be provided to fit the works of art. For legal contract, please see
