THOMPSONVILLE — Michigan Legacy Art Park is offering free admission to visitors on April 24 in celebration of International Sculpture Day.

The 30-acre park is home to over 40 contemporary outdoor sculptures and installations, each connected in some way to Michigan’s history, culture or natural environment.

The park will also host the monthly Crosshatch and Blackbird Arts “Artists After Hours” event at 6 p.m. that day. All area artists are invited to attend for a special tour of the park led by MLAP Artistic director Kaz McCue and then gather for social time at nearby Iron Fish Distillery in Thompsonville.

International Sculpture Day is a worldwide celebration advancing the creation and understanding of sculpture and its unique, vital contribution to society. It is a day to create a unified community championing sculpture.

Michigan Legacy Art Park is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located on a 30-acre preserve leased by Crystal Mountain for $1 per year. Michigan Legacy Art Park features 47 outdoor sculptures that celebrate Michigan’s culture and history along nearly two miles of wooded hiking trails.
