The Arts Council of Greater Lansing discussed plans for next year's Arts Impact Project.

The project is a $75,000 grant from the city of Lansing.

It will be a permanent creative structure to help enrich the area.

On Wednesday night, people gave a brief presentation of what kind of project they would like to add to the city.

"Tonight, we hear the ideas. We have a panel of very qualified judges that will listen and evaluate, and over the course of the next few weeks we'll have any lingering questions answered from the participants," said Meghan Martin, Interim Executive Director Arts Council of Greater Lansing.

One of the projects that this grant has funded is the "Portrait of Dreamer" by Ivan Iler, located on Michigan Avenue.

The Arts Council will announce sometime in January whose idea they will choose for the Arts Impact Project.
