“The Village of Pentwater supports a diverse and growing arts presence,” states press release about the inaugural event. “For this first of the three-year project, the Village of Pentwater Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and the Pentwater Arts Council (PAC) have teamed up for Sculpture Walk 2022.

“Five locations along the main street (Hancock Street) have been identified and will display the sculptures of five artists. Photos of each location are available at pentwaterartscouncil.org. The five artists selected will receive a $1,500 honorarium to offset expenses. Additional monetary awards for ‘Juror’s Top Choice’ and ‘People’s Choice’ will be given at the Oct. 15, 2022 celebration event. In addition, there may be a possible purchase award.

“Each sculpture will have an identification plaque. A wayfinding map along with social media, press releases and local press will be completed on the artists and artwork on display. Educational activities along with docent-led tours are planned. The village holds festivals and events throughout the season that will give further exposure to the exhibition. An artist’s reception and celebration is planned for Oct. 15, 2022 to give the artists the opportunity to meet the community and talk about their work. Artist awards will be presented at the reception.”
