Saint Joseph, Mich. The City of Saint Joseph will feature lighthouses as the theme of its 2014 public art. Each summer, Downtown Saint Joseph is filled with creative and unique pieces from Michiana artists.
In the summer of 2014, the art event will promote the city's effort to raise money to renovate its North Pier Lighthouses. Artists will be encouraged to paint the lighthouses to look differently than they do now.
The city needs $2 million to repair the lighthouses after ownership was transferred from the state. A committee is being put together to organize the fundraiser.
