Background

MCEP believes that all vibrant communities should have art, and we hope you do, too. The presence of art can enhance the quality of life and the economic climate in a community.  People want to live and work in communities that are striving to improve, and art can bring a positive energy for all.  We believe that art can play a role in our community’s rebirth after the many crises that have hit us, from the great recession of 2008 to the coronavirus that continues to challenge our lives.

In 2018, MCEP began working to do our part with a Sculpture Project focused in our neighborhood of south Mount Clemens.  In partnership with the Michigan Sculpture Initiative LLC, this now ongoing project hosts outdoor sculptures created by Midwest artists for a period of one year, at which time the sculptures are removed and replaced by new ones. With the assistance of local businesses and donors we were able to sponsor eight sculptures in 2018-19, nine sculptures in 2019-20, and 11 sculptures this current cycle of 2020-21.   We have also benefited from three donors purchasing sculptures for permanent display in the community.

New Sculptures Are on Display!


The annual changeover is complete. From October 2021 through September 2022 you have the opportunity to view artists’ sculptures. They’re on display throughout the south end of Mount Clemens. This MCEP community enhancement project is done in cooperation with the Midwest Sculpture Initiative and funded through the very generous support of individuals, businesses and community supporters.
