TECUMSEH, Mich. —

For its fifth year, the Art Trail in Tecumseh will have artwork on display around the city. The newest location is Community Arts of Tecumseh at John Smith Park.

“We are very excited to have the Art Trail again this year,” said Paula Holtz, Tecumseh economic development director. “We had over 300 pieces to review and tried to choose different pieces, different styles, colors and sizes, trying to mix it up.”

Seventeen pieces will be on display. The locations are still being finalized and will be announced later, Holtz said. The pieces will be put in place in late April or early May. Contributing artists are from Michigan, Ohio, Florida and North Carolina.

Brochures listing the locations of the artwork will be available at businesses throughout Tecumseh. Most of the displays will be within a few blocks of the central  business district, except for Community Arts of Tecumseh and the Tecumseh Community Center.

Art Trail Tecumseh is a Downtown Development Authority project and is funded with grants from the DDA, the Michigan Council for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. Ken Thompson of the Michigan Sculpture Initiative is a major partner in the exhibit, Holtz said.

The Art Trail is a popular attraction for the city, she said, and brings a number of people to town. The exhibit has been successful enough that Holtz will make a presentation on it at the Building Michigan Communities Conference on April 23-25.
