The Midwest Sculpture Initative
THE MIDWEST SCULTPURE INITIATIVE
Installation on May 21st
The Midwest Sculpture Initiative returns to change our installation on May 21. Every year The Ella participates in the Midwest Sculpture Initiative, organized by Ken Thompson, sculptor and owner of Flatlander's Art Galleries and Sculpture Supply in Blissfield, MI. The 10 pieces we have enjoyed the past year will find new homes and we will welcome 10 completely new works to our grounds. A sculpture walk will be planned later in the summer. The Ella pays a rental on the pieces to host them for a year, and all pieces are for sale. If you are interested in purchasing one for your own yard, or for The Ella's permanent collection, let us know. We hope you come by soon to enjoy the new works!
