Some of the art in the Kingsley Rain Garden,

We talk about the new and improved art commission, which works for the city council to put art in public places across Ann Arbor.

One of the projects they're currently working on is the Stadium Boulevard Retaining Wall.  They're down to three finalists and are encouraging people to vote for their favorite.

Vote here.

Kotarski says they're also responsible for the Manchester Water Tower, which is the tallest public art project in the state, and the Kingsley Rain Garden "pocket park" in Ann Arbor on Kingsley and First.
