Michigan Technological University’s Visual and Performing Arts Department and the Ford Center are pleased to host the Contemplative Forest Art Walk, a contemplative art trail experience by Anne Beffel, Professor of Arts. Hand painted banners hanging in the forest canopy mark meditation stations along the short, contemplative path. Signage describes different kinds of mindfulness practices and links to guided meditations designed for mindfulness practice in the forest. An additional station is located near the entrance to the Canyon Falls trail. Parking is available at the at the conference center followed by a short walk past the tennis court to the trailhead marked by signage. The art will remain installed for the summer and fall seasons, as weather permits.  The public may access the trail any day of the week during daylight hours.


Contemplative Forest Art Walk, designed at the invitation of Dean Andrew Storer of the Michigan Technological University School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science, is supported by a Michigan Technological University Research Excellence Fund Grant with additional support from the College of Sciences and Arts, the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science, the Department of Visual and Performing Arts and the Office of Institutional Equity.
