St Joseph's Planes and Trains

Adults and children alike are enjoying the painted planes and trains in downtown St Joseph this summer.  27 of these uniquely decorated machines are on display all over town. Clockwise from the upper left: Puffy Stuffy is the work of Midnite Remisoski, resident of Benton Harbor. She also did the second one, Train the Dogs. Kiddie Hawk was done by Margaret Hogeboom, Toni Smith and Heather Seawright who work together at Chartreuse, a local arts co-op in St Joe's. Flying Straight to College was created by Nicholas Jones who got his Master of Fine Arts from Wayne State. Lastly, the Polar Express train was done by John Foster from Baroda.  St Joseph loves to create a theme and give local artists the chance to create public art.  Through the years they've done bears, dogs, cars and merry-go-round horses.
