Sculpture on Ford Road

Canton, now Michigan's 11th largest community, has created a national level blueprint of positive evolution from a farming to an urban community. To celebrate the creative solutions Canton used for functional beautification that allies with commercial development, the Canton Downtown Development Authority, in partnership with the Canton Cultural Commission's Public Art Committee, have placed 8 sculptures along Canton's Ford Rd. The sites are located between Westland and Canton Center road. The Canton DDA provided funding for the project and the Public Art Committee juried entries presented by the Midwest Sculpture Initiative.
