Eye for Design

East Lansing

Nancy and Michael Dunn of East Lansing were the first correct response to the Aug. 9 Eye for Design. The studded column capitals may be found at the entrance to Playmakers’ store (below) in Okemos, but the building’s primary character-defining feature are its broad, laminated wood arches. The building, which once housed Schmidt’s grocery, has served as Playmakers’ home since 2002.

The carved stone relief above may be found in East Lansing. The first person to correctly identify the location of the detail will receive a City Pulse Eye for Design mug. Send your answer to daniel@eastarbor.com by Sept. 27.
