Detroit Dream Project – Progress Report

During clean up Doxie noticed Bud-e one of our resident poets secretly installed the name plate designed last summer during the Temple build. Thank you Bud-e!

After the arson attempt last fall the pillar was cleaned up and spare pieces affixed, not to cover the damage, but illustrate how the the Detroit Dream Project is a Phoenix from the ashes and is proof of our overall resiliency

Just in from our woman in the street in Detroit, Danielle Kaltz (Doxie), reporting to us that one of the Detroit Burners, Jeremy Hockett says his friend, Phill from Seattle is a contributor to a new magazine Just Cause, and the Detroit Dream Project, which is part of our Civic Arts Program, and was designed by BRAF board member, David Best, is featured on Page 39 as part of a story on the Motor City Blight Busters.

The photos above are from the Spring Clean-up Saturday March 28 10:00 AM. The clean up day coincided with the Detroit Project Day that brings over 1,000 University of Michigan students to Detroit to help in clean-up efforts throughout Northwest Detroit. As you can see, the participants did a first post-winter park clean-up to freshen up the site.

Thanks from us at the Black Rock Arts Foundation to all of you in Michigan who are carrying the torch for the Detroit Dream Project.
