Students from the Interlochen's Visual Arts program stepped out into the community and collaborated with the Great Lakes Children's Museum to paint a mural along the side of the building. A mini Mackinac Bridge art installation was constructed in front of the building and Interlochen students helped bring it to life by painting a mural behind it. The end result symbolizes the Upper Peninsula on the left and the Lower Peninsula on the right, with imagery designed by the Visual Arts students with help from some of the Visual Arts faculty members.

The experience was an opportunity for students to take their work beyond the classroom setting and become involved with the community. Check out this story on the project, featured in Up North Live.
