LANSING ARTS AND CULTURE
• Mayor Schor established the Arts and Culture Commission last spring.
• The City of Lansing joined LEAP and the Arts Council in announcing $140,000 in First Impression grants to fund large, permanent art projects in Lansing like the 2019 Arts Impact project, “Below the Stacks,” a city-wide mural designed to interpret Lansing’s legacy
• In 2018, Mayor Schor created a Diversity Commission to celebrate the diversity of Lansing and to find ways to work on the issues that may divide us. The Arts and Culture Commission was established last spring to enhance the city’s arts and culture community and transform how art is used, seen and placed in Lansing.
