Art Explored Series Showcases Michigan Artists
The third annual Art Explored Series has kicked off in downtown Royal Oak. This public art series launched two years ago with three featured artists, grew to eight local artists last year, and is now showcasing nine works by nine Michigan artists.
“It’s really a unique program,” said artist Molly Diana Murphy. “I find that it really brings a lot of people together – from people who are visual to the business community to people just walking around on their way to somewhere to the artists that create the work. It’s an amazing opportunity to take a step outside of the box. It’s better than going to an art gallery.”
In addition to Murphy, the selected artists are Richard Gage, Doug DeLind, Paolo Pedini, Desiree Kelly, Peter Pawlicki, Michael Jones, Tim Gralewski, and John Sobczak.
