Waiting to be ‘discovered’


Pioneer Tribune photo Pioneer Tribune photo Work has begun on the Power of Words Project in Manistique, with power-washing taking place earlier this week. “Discover” will be the word at the center of a mural to be painted on the south-facing wall of the downtown Peoples Store. The Power of Words Project is a humanitarian mural campaign designed to engage and inspire community members to participate in the creative process by coming together to elect words that define the vision they hold for the future of their community. These words become the themes for works of art designed by Mia Tavonatti, an internationally award winning artist and native of Iron Mountain, and created by her and her team of professional muralists, local artists, and student scholarship recipients. The Svelata Foundation and Schoolcraft Tourism and Commerce, in partnership with the Lake Effect Community Arts Center, are partnering to bring Manistique’s first mural to the area in July.
