“YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL” to be unveiled July 1st
The City of Michigan City will unveil a 6 foot tall by 48 foot long YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL public art installation by world renowned artist Matthew Hoffman on Saturday, July 1 at 1:30 PM in the greenspace located at 121 W. Michigan Blvd – the former site of the New Dispatch and Michigan City Police Department buildings. This movable art installation was commissioned by City of Michigan City Mayor Ron Meer with support from the Michigan City Redevelopment Commission, the Michigan City Gateway Public Art Committee (MAC) and Lubeznik Center for the Arts, and was fabricated in Michigan City. The YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL art movement, started in 2002 by Chicago-based artist and designer Matthew Hoffman, began simply with 100 stickers placed throughout Chicago and has evolved into an internationally renowned project with block-long murals, public installations and exhibitions at cultural institutions across the globe, engaging thousands of artists and millions of viewers. The Michigan City installation will be the biggest and most permanent Hoffman project to date, placing Michigan City at the epicenter of the YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL project worldwide.
