Local family’s sculpture to become park art | Arts & Culture







Megan and Jamie Doss have helped revive a family sculpture that will be installed in Spring Lake’s Central Park this Thursday afternoon.



After the Doss family sold Muskegon County-based Structural Concepts in 2018, there was a full-fledged assumption that they had washed their hands with the company. The paperwork was finalized, the keys were handed over and life would go on.

Except there was one piece of history that was left behind.
