  • Brief Description

    The Allen Neighborhood Center and Prospect P.L.A.C.E. Neighborhood have received a Public Art for Communities Grant on behalf of the City of Lansing from the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) in the amount of $10,000. The grant was awarded to commission, create, and install a piece(s) of public art to be on display for the community. The public art piece(s) will be a uniquely created, physical work of art, which will be permanent in nature to endure the site, activities, and weather. The grant is intended to enhance economic development efforts in the greater Lansing region through placemaking.

    The Allen Neighborhood Center and Prospect P.L.A.C.E. Neighborhood are currently accepting proposals from artists interested in creating two (2) commissioned public art pieces to be located in the specified locations near the pavilion in Hunter Park and on Kalamazoo Street in front of Allen Place. The pieces are to be creatively themed, functional bike racks. The proposed bike racks are envisioned as being highly visible to both pedestrian and automobile traffic while acting as landmarks representing the vibrancy of the Eastside and Hunter Park.
