A dubious government in a godforsaken city. Unresponsive to the deportation of creativity. Expectations, disgust, fidelity and patronage are concealed; not behind closed doors, in front of them.
Depictions of reality, behavior and contradictions diagram the regression of social systems and subordinates.
Public spaces; once vacant and impaired, now inhabited by urbanites past and present.
Overlooked yet expanding. Small reminders of existence and life appear in big installments.
In the city that once was,
and the tenacious,
beckon a resurgence of the city that still is.
Detroit is an inspiration. Public art is a part of the beautification project taking place throughout Detroit’s downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Support and share the work of Michigan artists.
