Lorrie's Button

About this Stop

Hy Zelkowitz' sculpture, Lorrie's Button,  was created  as part of a competition to design a piece for the bicentenial year in Grand Rapids. It was designed to be as much of an object for play as an object of art, and has been a beloved destination for Grand Rapids' children since it's installation at the annual Festival of the Arts in 1976. 

Some Facts

  • Zelkowitz won $500 along with his first place award, all of which was put back into the production of the sculpture
  • The every day wear and tear from play on the scuplture makes Lorrie's Button one of the city's most expensive works of public art to maintain.



Sorry, but we couldn't get the venue for this stop.
