ART VISION ALPENA, a project of Thunder Bay Arts
Water in Limestone
by Autumn Bildson
Coming with Culligan Plaza's redo!
Art Vision Alpena strives to bring new public art and sculpture to Alpena through a continuation of the Sculptured Bi-Path project. As a re-energized project of Thunder Bay Arts Council, Inc., Art Vision Alpena strives to establish an endowment for sustainable expansion as well as ongoing preservation and maintenance of sculpture projects along Alpena's Bi-Path.
Following Water in Limestone which is destined for Culligan Plaza upon its overhaul, TBA has a sculpture in store for 2023 at Sytek Park titled, Gone Fishing. Look for this installation in Fall 2023! Three more sculptures are planned leading up to 2026 - the 250th Sestercentennial Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and the 50th Anniversary of the Alpena Bi-Path itself. It's with the Bicentennial (200th Anniversary of the Declaration) that the idea of a sculptured Bikeway-Walkway (named as the Bicentennial "Bi" Path) started! Please consider a donation to help facilitate upcoming scultpures in 2024, 2025 and 2026. You can send a check or donate online. Send us an email indicating the intent of your donation. Or contact the TBA Office at 356.6678 for details about donating through the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan and the Art Vision Alpena Fund.
