In 2018 the City of Durand received a grant from the I-69 Thumb Region to support an Art in Place project. The goal of “Art in Place” is to work with artists to created art that is anchored in place. Our vision for this project was to make these works publically accessible and a part of a larger blight elimination project. Introducing interesting spaces helps to attract people to our community and local businesses.
The work of four artists is featured on the public works building located at Hagel and Main, near the Sandula Clock Tower.
Tammi Browning is a retired art teacher and currently teaches museum education classes at the Flint Institute of Arts. She and her husband Lance live in the Durand area, where they raised their children. With an inside understanding of the community, she sought to illustrate the strong family bonds present in the community, as well as their pride in country living.
Lacey Harmon is a Michigan artist who has been painting murals and portraits for 30 years. Her work is available for sale across the United States. Lacey is honored to be a part of this project.
Daniel Churchill is a professional artist who grew up in the Durand area. Graffiti has always caught his eye as art and much of his art is intended to duplicate that urban feel. He now lives and works in California.
Josh Meadows is a Durand High School graduate and a long time area resident. His mural is reflection of memories made with friends and family living in Durand.
