From utility boxes to manhole covers, Ann Arbor is known for having a great deal of public art in some unusual places.

Now there’s a new work of art on the recently reconstructed Stadium Boulevard, and 89.1 WEMU’S Lisa Barry takes you there to meet the artist as he finished the project in a public space in Ann Arbor…

I am joined by Omari Rush, the director of Community Engagement at the Ann Arbor Art Center, and Cara Rosaen, lead organizer of the newly created Winter Art Tour happening this weekend in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.

Rosaen explains why the art tour was created and how it incorporates a number of different art shows and sales happening locally this weekend into one big event.
