Public art installations culturally enhance a community, give it an identity and aid in quality of life improvements for its residents.
While Lansing has no shortage of public art offerings that tease the eye and tickle the brain, a significant concentration of structures and pieces can be found on the downtown campus of Lansing Community College. Founded in 1957, the main campus of the public community college sits on a sprawling 42-acre urban site that spans seven city blocks within eyeshot of the state Capitol.
Former LCC President Brent Knight had a vision of the college being a great place to learn that was also aesthetically pleasing. Knight fulfilled both missions, and the campus now bustles with educational endeavors accented with the pleasing aesthetics of art throughout.
The best part is you don’t have to be a student to enjoy the art structures that dot the campus.
If you have a chance to enter any of the buildings, whether as a student or a visitor, take some time to peruse the remarkable collection of art that enhances the already inviting space.
