New art sculptures pop up in St. Joseph

ST. JOSEPH, Mich. -- The city of St. Joseph is showing off its artistic side.

On Friday, the Krasl Art Center put up five new sculptures on the St. Joseph River.

It's part of the Bi-annual Invitational Art Exhibition.

The sculptures come from all over the state and stay for two years.

"Public art boosts pride, shows wealth of a community, becomes way-finders.  It becomes gathering places.  It''s a sight of interest on these walking trails in St. Joe, and in the different areas," said Tami Miller of the Krasl Art Museum.

In all, 26 scultures will be going up around town.

They will be on the riverfront, Lookout Park, the box factory, and the Benton Harbor arts district.
