"Call for Artists"

The Fremont Downtown Development Authority's Public Art Committee continually works to enrich the lives of the City’s residents and visitors through art.  Over the last 16 years, the town has seen 15 new public art pieces emerge, adding to that quality of life that we all enjoy here in Newaygo County.  The Committee's next public art project will be located in the south central greenspace area of Fremont's Veterans Memorial Park.  A "Call for Artists" has been issued for submission of proposals that are community/family friendly, touchable, and appreciated by multi-generations of community members.
