The newest addition to the Downtown Muskegon Public Art Collection will be unveiled August 16 at the site of The Old Indian Cemetery on Morris Street in downtown Muskegon. The Old Indian Cemetery has been documented as burial grounds for Native Americans of the region as early as 1750. Jason Quigno, Michigan Anishinaabe artist, is creating Niikonii Kiinaa, or All My Relations, out of 12,000 pounds of black granite.
This project is enthusiastically supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, Community Foundation for Muskegon County, Downtown Arts Committee, Muskegon Museum of Art, City of Muskegon, Little River Band of Ottawa Indians, and a dedicated and generous cadre of individuals and businesses.
The dedication of Niikonii Kiinaa will be at The Old Indian Cemetery on Morris Avenue across from the MATS Terminal, August 16, 5:30 pm, followed by a 6:00 pm reception and program by the artist at the Muskegon Museum of Art. The public is invited.
