    Saturday from 1:00pm – 5:00pm – On the Compass at Main & Ann Arbor Trail!

    There’s music playing softly in the background.  A grey statue stands two feet in the air on a stone platform with an umbrella cane in hand.  You notice a crowd gathered transfixed on the motionless figure, waiting.  Every 15 minutes the statue comes to life!  Everyone applauds & one person is silently asked to join the statue.  The statue manages to read minds, challenge your perception & stop time. This is the experience folks have year after year at Art In The Park where George has become an iconic fixture.     https://georgesmind.com/
