If you want to live or work in Detroit, there are opportunities for you!!
The City of Detroit has partnered with the Southwest Detroit Business Association and the Inner state Gallery in Eastern Market to curate the first ever municipal street art program, the Blight Abatement Artist Residency Program (BAARP). Roula David curated the selection of three Detroit Artists for this inaugural cycle. Focusing on the hardest hit walls these artists will work with the Blight Abatement team at General Services Detroit over the course of 8 weeks to paint murals in and around the City of Detroit. After the 8 week residency a group art show including the 7 viaduct mural artists will happen October 12, 2017 in order to celebrate the program and the group’s achievements. Participating artist will be required to donate one piece of art to the city.
