A 3.5-mile stretch of the Lansing River Trail, from Old Town to REO Town, will feature 19 unique art installations from Michigan-based makers this summer, marking the third year that the Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center provides public access to the exhibition.

The gallery partnered with donors, the City of Lansing and its Parks and Recreation Department to create the third annual ARTpath River Trail Exhibition. The path, accessible on foot, bike or hopping in and out of a kayak from the Grand River, features sculptures, paintings, large scale murals and mixed media.

The pieces, which can be found on this map, are designed to be interactive and engaging with park visitors. Last summer over 62,000 visitors enjoyed the River Trail during the duration of the project.
