“Art creates a sense of place and really ties the community together,” said Cathleen Edgerly, Main Street DDA director. “Our Design Committee was pleased to bring back the Howell Art Project and share great pieces of seasonal-themed artwork with our residents and visitors. We encourage everyone to visit our participating downtown businesses and vote for their favorites to be displayed later this summer on buildings throughout the downtown district.”
The Howell Art Project is sponsored by Maki J’s Salon, Farm Bureau Insurance, the Law Office of Don Lewis, and Chem Trend. The Howell Art Project is proudly brought to the community by the Howell Main Street DDA Design Committee.
