"The Heart & Art of Grand Ledge" by Tony Hendrick
In 2004, artist Tony Hendrick invited the community to aid in the design and painting of a mural depicting highlights in the City of Grand Ledge, both past, and present. The end result is a colorful 58 by 26-foot true work of art affixed to the side of the City's former 1855 Fire Hall. Here, the mural is proudly displayed above Fitzgerald Memorial Field and is easily viewed from the City's Riverwalk Trail connecting Island Park and Jaycee Park, as well as from Bridge Street that spans across the Grand River. The mural was funded with a grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and the City of Grand Ledge.
