Art in the Eye

Located in south central Michigan, Marshall is sited at the intersection of I-94 and I-69.   Marshall was founded in the 1830's and constructed around a center circle highlighted by a Greek revival fountain.   A storehouse of 19th century architecture, Marshall has been given the status of "National Historic Landmark District" and is the largest small urban district so designated in the nation.   This district includes specialty stores, antique shops, unique bed and breakfast inns and is home to the Frank Center for the Arts.   Marshall is also the recipient of the Dozen Distinctive Destinations Award given by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.   In addition to the historic buildings and charming shops, Marshall hosts such events as a June Civil War Encampment, Cruise to the Fountain Car Show, Welcome to My Garden Tour, a Blue's and Bluegrass Festival and an annual Historic Home Tour.   The Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce can be contacted at (269) 781-5163, or for current events.

"Art in the Eye" is a sculpture exhibition created to help encourage tourism, support economic development for the Marshall area and promote interest in the arts.   Seventeen sculptures of various sizes are placed throughout the Marshall downtown.   The artists are all from the Midwest and eastern United States.   Vee Kalnins and his "Art in the Eye" committee were able to obtain a commitment of support from such organizations as the Marshall Rotary, Marshall Main Street, Marshall Community Foundation, Cronin Foundation and private donations.   The exhibition will run from July 2007 to July 2008.   More information can be found at
