If you want to look at art during the coronavirus pandemic, your options are pretty limited. Art museums and galleries are considered non-essential businesses and are closed across the state until at least the end of the month.

That’s why Michigan Legacy Art Park in Thompsonville is uniquely positioned at a time like this. It’s outdoors and visitors have plenty of space to socially distance in the park’s 30 acres. 

Nearly 100 people gather to hear the Benzie Central Chamber Choir perform at Michigan Legacy Art Park in Thompsonville on Saturday.
