BALDWIN — The Baldwin Downtown Development Authority has begun the process of bringing art to the village. The first piece has been selected and will highlight the community's long history as a fishing destination.
"During the past six months, the Baldwin DDA has been working on a project to bring world-class art to the village," said Jane Allison, DDA chairperson. "The DDA distributed statewide 'requests for proposals' and 'calls to artists' in an effort to find just the right artist for the project. On Feb. 18, 2016, the Baldwin DDA retained the services of Mr. Ivan Iler from St. John’s Michigan to design a contemporary sculpture recognizing the historical significance of brown trout in the village.
