The future of downtown Mount Clemens certainly looks bright. A new art event, designed to encourage Macomb County residents to celebrate local works, saw the downtown area showing off four new public art installations on Saturday.
Families enjoyed free activities, performances, demos, and installations at SUPER SatARTday, an event hosted by the Anton Art Center and partners. The four new projects are part of the vision of the KaBoom! “Play Everywhere” grant challenge to bring playful concepts to everyday spaces.
KaBOOM! CEO James Siegal says the Play Everywhere project can make community spaces friendlier and help develop a sense of place in cities. “Neighbors become more connected, kids learn and grow, and previously neglected spaces become safe and vibrant,” he says.
