About This Installation
My inspiration for this piece comes from my love of cartoons and funny characters. For example, the works of Jim Henson are a big influence on me. I hope to encourage visitors to snap pictures of friends and family inside the monster’s “mouth” and share them to social media. Please use the hashtags #ArtPathPals and #lansingartpath to share your photos! I see it as a fun way for visitors, especially children, to celebrate being outside while interacting with art, and help promote the River Trail, ArtPath, and Lansing.
Daniel J. Hogan is a cartoonist living in Lansing with his wife who is also an artist, and his five cats. He moved here after graduating from Grand Valley State University where he studied Film/Video Production and Animation and has lived here ever since. He creates whimsical, quirky pictures and comics, typically using watercolor but experimenting with other mediums as well.
NOTE: Some images are submission proposals. Final artwork photos will be posted after the artist has completed their installation prior to June 1, 2021.
