The Challenge of Diversity

“Landmark for Peace” Memorial, Indianapolis | Greg Perry and Daniel Edwards, Artists

As Executive Director of Michigan Legacy Art Park, a post I’ve held now for over a year, I’m constantly hoping and looking for ways our work can reflect the full diversity of the world we live in. Our Board of Directors, volunteers, and staff share this aspiration. And I think our supporters and fans do too.
