ArtPath Opens for 2024 Season

The 2024 ArtPath project opened to the public on Memorial Day along the Lansing River Trail from the Turner-Dodge House and Heritage Center to Elm Park, and an official ribbon-cutting and opening ceremony is planned May 30.

ArtPath consists of 20 sites of public art created by 22 Michigan artists along the 2.5-mile stretch of the Grand River. The celebration of public art runs through Sept. 2 and will officially begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. May 30 at the Turner-Dodge House in Old Town immediately followed by a kickoff celebration from 6-8 p.m. Kickoff festivities will feature lawn games, chalk art, ArtPath merchandise and more.
