ISHPEMING, Mich (WBUP) — A new park is turning a vacant lot into a green space for the Ishpeming community.
The Marquette County Land Bank Authority teamed up with local partners to transform two broken down buildings into a vibrant cultural gathering place.
The colorful display of art panels from Ishpeming High School Students and Alumni is an invitation for the community to relax near the corner of Third Street and Division.
The Hematite Art Park is a local art gallery and an important creative outlet for students.
The Ishpeming High School Advanced Construction Students are even building a gazebo at the park as part of their curriculum.
