2021 Summer Art Project

“YOU ARE HERE” – 2021 Summer Outdoor Art Project

After so many months of navigating life, summer has come around once again. It is time to enjoy the outdoors and celebrate living! The Wayne County Arts Alliance has taken on a summer project to share the Arts with the public and bring joy to our community. The project, “You Are Here” brings the arts to the outdoors. 35 large panels have been created by area artists celebrating the uniqueness in us all. Each panel has two cut outs for heads of both young and old to poke through and snap a photo….or even create a fun video.

Sponsoring businesses have generously offered their sidewalks for display. On the back side of each panel you will find a QR code that will lead you to this website where you will find the map to locate all the panels….so you too can be here….and here….and here! There are so many opportunities to have fun with this summer project. The WCAA is also holding a contest for the most fun video you can create with the panel of your choice. Just make your video and post to #waynecountyarts. We hope to spread the joy with this project, in person and on line!

We ask everyone to be safe and hope you will enjoy this wonderful project…joyfully made available by generous donations from the Wayne County Community Foundation, Home Depot, Dirlam Bros Lumber Company and Pioneer Construction, along with each sponsoring business.

And of course this project could have never happened without the creative artists who live in our area.
