2:00PM – ARTISTS + ARTISTS TOUR
Artistic Director, Kaz McCue will lead the way on this special tour designed for artists.
We will be joined by several other MLAP “Legacy” artists who will each share and answer questions about the processes and inspiration behind their pieces in our collection: Sergio Degiusti, Dewey Blocksma, Bill Allen, David Petrakovitz, Patricia Innis, and Eric Troffkin.
Artists (from aspiring to established), arts professionals and art lovers are all invited and strongly encouraged to attend this tour.
This is an excellent opportunity for university or graduate sculpture programs to spend a day gleaning decades of experienced wisdom from these artists.
5:00PM – ARTISTS MIXER AT IRON FISH
Following the artists’ tour, plan to spend some good time making new friends at Iron Fish Distillery. It’s a great chance to get to know other artists from around Michigan, share stories and dream up new collaborations.
Iron Fish Distillery is Michigan’s first working farm solely dedicated to the practice of distilling small-batch craft spirits.
