Over 1,000 pieces of patriotic-themed artwork will be on display at Michigan Memorial Park from May 25 through early June during their “Art in the Park” exhibit to honor U.S. military veterans.
Artwork featured in the display was created by students from Brown and Miller Elementary Schools in the Huron District.
The display will line the entrance to the park, which is located at 32163 W. Huron River Drive.

“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.”
This is the fourth year in a row the park is hosting the art display for the public.
Each piece of artwork on display will be labeled with the artist’s name and grade.
