Erickson Center for the Arts presents Park Art, "Playful Pinwheels"

Arts &Theater
Location: Erickson Center for the Arts, Curtis
Three years ago, visitors from all over the Midwest made their way to the Erickson Center for the Arts (ECA) to witness the first annual Park Art. The new tradition began with an exhibit known as the “Peaceful People.” “After receiving a great deal of positive feedback we decided to carry on this tradition as an annual exhibit,” said Kelly Chamberlin, ECA President. “We hope it continues to draw visitors to stop and discover both the Center and the town.” This year’s Park Art will be “Playful Pinwheels”. See this colorful display of spinning cheer on the Erickson Center lawn. The pinwheels will stand next to the Center through Labor Day, providing continuous color and joy to the field. They will then be sold as art at this year’s Art on the Lake, an ECA annual event, on September 3rd.

Runners then ascend up the eastern cliffs of the island which treat runners to views of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The northern half of the island features 300ft colored Jacobsville sandstone cliffs and the remote and exquisitely beautiful North Beach. The return trail on the island’s western shore features remarkable vistas of Lake Superior. Much of the trail is shaded by lush hardwood forests.
