Michigan Legacy Art Park


 

Enjoy art beyond museum walls…

Visitors to Michigan Legacy Art Park, located within the grounds of Crystal Mountain, are led through the densely wooded 30-acre preserve on 1.6 miles of hiking trails within Crystal Mountain. The Art Park features over 40 sculptures, poetry stones, an outdoor amphitheatre; and a Summer Sounds Concert Series (July & August). Each of the sculptures interprets, in its own way, a piece of Michigan's history. View Park Map

The Art Park is open year-round from dawn to dusk, and is accessible by foot, cross-country skis or even snowshoes. Admission is $5 per adult. Kids ages 17 and under are free. (Free admission for Crystal Mountain's houseguests and Four Seasons Club members.)

Artist David Barr founded the Michigan Legacy Art Park in 1995. He envisioned the Art Park as a place where "artists could tell the story of Michigan through the fundamental materials of nature” while connecting man to nature, nature to man, and transcending those boundaries without disturbing the balance.

Crystal Mountain owners Jim and Chris MacInnes and the Petritz family embrace Barr’s vision and donate use of the site as well as support services to the artistic cause.

Michigan Legacy Art Park is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Additions to the Art Park’s collection are selected through artist applications that are reviewed by a jury.
