A new sculpture to welcome visitors to Belle Isle Park in Detroit
DETROIT – A new sculpture welcomes visitors to Belle Isle Park in Detroit this year.
Detroit artists and brothers, Erik and Israel Nordin, constructed a glass and steel sculpture called “One World…Under Michigan Stars.” The artwork will be on display at the park’s Ralph Wilson Gateway, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced.
“The Ralph Wilson Walkway will be the starting point for many journeys along the Iron Belle Trail that connects communities across the region and across Michigan,” said Ralph C Parks and Trails Director JJ Tighe. Wilson Jr. Foundation. “This beautiful art sculpture will welcome visitors to Belle Isle and is an amazing addition to this special place to begin any adventure on the island and beyond on the Iron Belle Trail.”

The Gateway is said to serve as the southern trail of the state’s Iron Belle Trail, which is currently under construction and stretches from Belle Isle to “the western end of Ironwood in the Upper Peninsula”, officials said. The 2,000+ mile trail would be considered the longest state-designated trail in the United States.
