For the Summer of 2018, Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center will partner with the City of Lansing to bring temporary, site-specific artwork to 10 sites along 3.5 miles of the Lansing River Trail.

The artwork will be installed from the historic arts district of Old Town Lansing, through the Capital Complex of Downtown Lansing, south of the highway and Beech St. An estimated 50,000 visitors will enjoy the

River Trail during the duration of this project.

Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center would like to invite you to our opening reception for 2018 ARTpath: Public Art on the Lansing River Trail on Friday, June 8th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Our kickoff event will begin at the Lansing Center’s gazebo with remarks from Mayor Andy Schor and bike decorating for both kids and adults. The opening reception will include a multi-modal curatorial tour where you can walk, bike, kayak or canoe along the Grand River to experience each of the sites. River Town Adventures will be open to rent bikes and kayaks. Site ambassadors and docents will be placed at each site to share more information about the work and the artists will be in attendance. The Lansing Center’s River Street Pub which overlooks the Grand River will be open for refreshments with cold beer provided by the the Lansing Brewing Company. This event will be free and open to the public. All ages are welcome!
