Bandemer River Art

Difficulty: ????
Part of the SummerGame2015 Game

Head on over to Bandemer Park (1352 Lakeshore Drive) to see more art! Canoe Imagine Art (CIA) is a public art project that repurposes canoes retired by the City of Ann Arbor with the purpose of celebrating the history and attributes of the Huron River and/or the City’s park system. Four works of art were selected, through a juried and public voting process, for temporary installations along the Huron River in Ann Arbor. You’ll also find framed reproductions of three famous paintings from the Detroit Institute of Art’s Inside|Out program. There's one of each in Bandemer Park.
When you enter the Park from Lakeshore Drive, look to your left. You can't miss the Canoe Imagine Art sculpture Tulip by Ray Katz. It's large and it's purple. Look for the information sign by the sculpture. This sign contains the artist's statement. There's one word in the artist's statement that contains the letter "X." This word is your first code.
Your next mission is to find the DIA Inside|Out art that is hiding across the river. Take the wooden bridge over the river and follow the path until you get to the second parking lot. You'll see a restroom to your left. Take the path going left around the restroom and follow it to the river. There you'll find Syria by the Sea by Frederic Edwin Church. The artist combined architecture from different cultures and empires to create a scene that you won’t find anywhere in the world. Which three did he combine to create this imaginary landscape? These three words combined are your second code.
