A Day at the Beach


Another example of the painted benches at the Pewaukee Lake beachfront.

Are you allowed to sit there or are they just to look at?

Works of art!

How fun and colorful!

There are artist-designed benches scattered around the Little Traverse Bay area in northern Michigan that - I think - will be auctioned off at the end of summer.

Are these benches part of something like that, that Pewaukee is doing?

It's adorable!

These commissioned pieces were created by local artists a few years back when the village redesigned the lake front and are permanent fixtures. You can actually sit in them, too. [A fund raising auction would have been a good idea as well.]

This one was created by Juergen Strigenz, a member of the Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club.

Thanks for the update, Joyce!
