LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -Lansing will continue its effort to bring public art to the Lansing River Trail through a new crowdfunding campaign.

If the campaign reaches its crowdfunding goal of $7,500 by April 27, the project will win a matching grant with funds made possible by MEDC’s Public Spaces Community Places program.

“Public art brings people out to public spaces and helps them better engage with those spaces and the community,” said MEDC Senior Vice President of Community Development Michele Wildman. “We are pleased to support this effort for the fourth year through our Public Spaces Community Places program.”

Public Spaces Community Places is a collaborative effort of the MEDC, the Michigan Municipal League, and Patronicity, in which local residents can use crowdfunding to be part of the development of strategic projects in their communities and be backed with a matching grant from MEDC.
