The Arts Commission is ‘putting its stamp' on the
National Great Lakes Museum, by way of a public art project.
Words of five poems written by local writers are being
stamped into some freshly-poured sidewalks at the outdoor public park under
construction. The poems were selected through a contest hosted by the Arts
The goal is to enhance the public gathering spot, and to
hopefully inspire some people as they visit the park in the future. A
ribbon-cutting for that park is expected sometime in June.
"This site is gorgeous. It's really great," said Nathan
Mattimoe with the Arts Commission. "I think adding that intimate interest of
these poems on these sidewalks is a cool thing."
"The beauty of the park is going to lend itself well for
groups to come down and utilize the park for different functions, or people
just coming down with brown bags and have lunch right here on the riverfront," said
Anna Kolin with the Great Lakes Historical Society.
A public reception for the poetic sidewalk project is
scheduled for May 23.
