Long considered a destination by artists and for artists, Downtown Ferndale and the Ferndale DDA have embraced every opportunity to bring more public art to the district. The result is an interesting and growing collection of public art and private art that is available for public viewing that invites visitors to take a second look and linger longer.
Delight in the signature murals of Daniel Cascardo, have a seat on a bus stop bench created by Cranbrook Art Academy students, see the contemporary rendition of history in the Crow’s Nest at Woodward & Nine.
On a daily basis, creativity thrives in the district — whether it is an artisan hard at work at the Rust Belt Market, musicians making music, improv -ers developing schticks and so much more — the genius of right brain thinking makes all the difference in Downtown Ferndale.
Enjoy the photo gallery of public art or better yet, take a walk around town and discover for yourself what distinquishes this town from all the others.
