Artists invited to participate in public art project

The Lakeshore Art Festival, in partnership with the Muskegon Museum of Art, is organizing an exhibition of public art in Downtown Muskegon for this summer. Artwork will incorporate a small boulder/rock that will be on display beginning June 24. All artists 18 years or older are invited to submit an application to participate in the project no later than March 22.

Accepted artists will receive a stipend and a small boulder/rock. The boulders vary in size, approximately 19”x10”x6”, and are being provided by Preferred Lawn Care & Snowplowing. Designs must be weather resistant. If applicable, sculptural elements must be securely attached to the boulder. Artists will be responsible for picking up their boulder on April 21, and delivering their completed piece no later than June 19. It is anticipated that 5 artists will be selected.

The public will be invited to participate in the #LAFRocks project during the festival on June 24, 25. The MMA will host a rock-decorating booth in the roundabout on Western Avenue.
