Hear ye! Hear ye! Our 15th annual public art exhibit will turn our Lake Michigan resort town into “The Magical Kingdom of St. Joseph” from May 18 to Sept. 20. The mayor has decreed that young, old and middle ages will have a royal good time seeking 15 enchanting sculptures of dragons, brave knights and a kid-size castle along downtown sidewalks. These original pieces of art painted by area artists will be perfect for taking whimsical selfies and creating make-believe adventures for the entire family.
