Art in Action

In the summer of 2016 and 2017, the Imlay City Downtown Development Authority sponsored 'Downtown Art in Action'.  Local artists,  produced 24 pieces of large public art pieces in two months' time.

The artwork is displayed throughout downtown on the outside of buildings with 2 pieces located within City Hall, 150 N. Main Street, and the Ruth Hughes Library, 211 North Almont Avenue.

The artwork is meant to be enjoyed by all adding color and conversation to our downtown.

The DDA would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their financial support to make this program successful.

Frontier Communications
Imlay City Rotary Club
Imlay City Lions Club
Vintech Industries
Lakestone Bank and Trust
Ian Kempf
Lapeer County FFA
JER Equipment Rentals
Tom Germayne
North Goodland Baptist Church

An anonymous donor also generously contributed to the project.

Enjoy your walk through downtown while experiencing the artwork.

City Hall (inside) 150 North Main Street I wanted my first painting to represent something about Imlay City's history. So when I discovered that the railroad played a major part in putting the City on the map I knew I just had to paint a train. I decided on a black and white theme to represent old time photos.
