MUSKEGON, Mich. — Art created from debris removed from around Muskegon Lake is being featured through Friday at the Red Lotus Gallery.

The 24 people whose work appears in the Muskegon Lake Art Project exhibit used debris cleared from the shore, according to the Muskegon Chronicle.

“I wish I could say [the idea] was completely mine, but there’s an artist on the East Coast who did a similar project after Hurricane Sandy,” said Ruth Bolles, project creator.

“I was participating in [the Muskegon cleanup] and said, ‘Wow, this would be an awesome opportunity for the community,’” Ms. Bolles said.
