Have you seen the little orange man?  The Man in the City Sculpture Project of 40+ sculptures displayed on rooftops throughout the cities of Detroit and Windsor came “Up North” this past summer. Crooked Tree Arts Center brought the Man in the City  to the communities it serves where rooftop installations happened over several months.  CTAC is pleased to present the first special event with “the man” on Sunday, October 19. This is an all-age, family-friendly day on Mackinac Island before it closes for the season.

We’ll meet at Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry Dock in Mackinaw City for a private “Mighty Mac Tour” with Captain Chris Shepler at 10:30am followed by special tours and treats at the Man in the City host sites on Mackinac Island – Mission Point Resort and The Gate House at the Grand Hotel.

“We have two special tours lined up in the afternoon. We’ll meet first at Mission Point Resort at 1:30pm to tour the former sound stage, where Somewhere in Time was produced. Next up, at 4pm the historian from the Grand Hotel will be joining us at The Gate House,” said Cindy McSurely, Development Director of the arts center. The rest of day, participants can explore on their own and return at their leisure. The last departing ferry for the evening is at 7pm.

Reservations are not required for the Man in the City cruise. Those wishing to participate, please use the secret password of “Crooked Tree” when purchasing. Ferry Tickets are $18 for Adults and $10 for children (ages 5-12 years). Departure is at 10:30am.

John Sauvé created the Man in the City project in 2008 and has exhibited it on New York City’s High Line and most recently on New York City’s Governors Island.
