Celebrating public art in Macomb County
Communities throughout Macomb County are making big investments in public art. So much so you could say our region is experiencing a bit of a renaissance. For instance, in Mount Clemens, the Anton Art Center has a map of all of the city’s paintings, sculptures and statues. Then there’s Sterling Heights, which also has an arts map and recently adopted a budget that includes funding for adding more public pieces to its already great collection. Other cities focused on art include Eastpointe, which created an Arts and Cultural Commission in their community. And of course, Macomb Township has a program that brings new public art to the township on a regular basis.
Inspired by these efforts, Macomb County and OneMacomb developed their own digital map of public art. Covering all 27 County communities, the map is a comprehensive resource for all residents and visitors interested in getting out and experiencing local sculptures, paintings, murals and a variety of other mediums.
