Over 1,000 pieces of patriotic-themed artwork will be on display at Michigan Memorial Park from May 26 through June 5 during the “Art in the Park” exhibit designed to honor veterans of the U.S. military.

Artwork featured in the display was created by elementary, middle, and high school students in Huron Township.

“We hope that visitors to Michigan Memorial Park during Memorial Day weekend and beyond will take a few minutes to view the work of the budding artists. It’s a very meaningful recognition and we are proud to partner with our schools in this endeavor,” said Kelly Dwyer, president of Michigan Memorial Park.

“We also hope that people will visit our Family Service office at the entrance of the park to learn more about other activities including our ‘Free Little Library’ and our walking club,” she said.

Each piece of artwork on display will be labeled with the artist’s name and grade.

Michigan Memorial Park is located at 32163 Huron River Drive.
