IRONWOOD, Mich. (AP) - A crowdfunding campaign is being launched to help build the Ironwood Art Park in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The effort is taking place through the Michigan-based crowd funding platform Patronicity. The Michigan Economic Development Corp., the city of Ironwood, the Downtown Ironwood Development Authority, Downtown Art Place and the Historic Ironwood Theatre are involved.

The goal is to raise $10,000 by Dec. 6 and get a $10,000 matching grant from the MEDC.

The Art Park is planned for near Art Place and the theatre. It will provide a public location to display art, hold performances and art classes, and promote arts and culture. The park also will be available for public functions and other events.

The fundraising is part of the Public Spaces Community Places effort.
