Royal Oak's growing art collection is just a hop, skip and jump away.

Six new public art installations were set in place in the last two weeks in downtown Royal Oak as part of the new public art program called Art Explored. 

The pieces join three pieces installed last summer by Michigan artists Brian Brook, Richard Gage, and Todd Stovall.

Art Explored is a program of the Royal Oak Commission for the Arts (ROCFA), sponsored by the Arts, Beats, and Eats Foundation. Artists are chosen by ROCFA to have their work displayed in downtown Royal Oak for up to a year. If the pieces are sold while on display, ROCFA receives a 25 percent commission on the work to support the future of the program, according to the City of Royal Oak's website.

I am glad to see the priorities are in order in Royal Oak. Ten businesses closing but hey, we've got public art next to the empty spaces.
