Art is all around us, and the Greater Lansing area is no exception. Take a stroll through any one of these surrounding neighborhoods to see bright, colorful street art, sculptures and a plethora of galleries, theaters and cultural events. Check out the list below for our picks of what not to miss in each of Lansing’s artsy districts.

Stroll through the campus of Lansing Community College in downtown Lansing and you can't help but stop and admire over a dozen colorful sculptures strategically placed around every corner. Inspirational, evocative and whimsical, these works of art create a welcoming and even happy environment. Art, it's been said, can increase mental acuity, increase critical thinking and reduce stress levels. Surrounding students with art then, seems to be a very good idea.

Walk around in downtown Lansing and you can find an abundance of details that might just be overlooked if you’re intent on just getting somewhere. Slow down and look closer and take notice of workmanship that you just don’t see in newer buildings. This is craftsmanship at its finest. If you look, you can see that the buildings are telling you their story.
