95. Lake Michigan Art Walk

April 5, 2011

The Lake Michigan Art Walk is kicking off their 2011 season from April 1 to May 20. The walk has a lot of cool shops along the route with some great artists. The walk is a great way to spend the day taking in the shops, the art, the lakeshore, and the downtown has some great new restaurants to enjoy as well if you need a meal or a frosty beverage. This is an event I know we will be taking several times over the month.

The Lake Michigan Art Walk exists to inspire economic and cultural development in the Downtown Muskegon area by creating an expanding awareness of the arts. The Lake Michigan Art Walk has been groomed to become an event that is going to play a vital role in re-growing and healing our downtown in Muskegon. There is an amazing collection of talent in this area that when focused together can bring awareness of a thriving arts district. The art walk exists to bring not only awareness but to inspire the economic and cultural development of our downtown.
