Bath City Art Park, Mt. Clemens
People used to come from around the world to Mt Clemens in the 1800's to bathe in the mineral waters here for their curative powers. At one time there were 13 bath houses in this area, thus the name of the sculpture park next to the Art Center: Bath City Art Park. This sculpture by Michigan artist John Sauvé is called Selbsterkenntnis. We find his sculptures all over Michigan. He's a curator and helps establish outdoor sculpture gardens like in Brighton and Birmingham. He's currently working on the Blue Water International Sculpture Exhibit between the US and Canada.
