DIA and CCS: a new relationship?
Other city's have animals...but Detroit has crazy concept cars. How long before these cars are a graffiti targets?
I went downtown to take another look at the ccs student exhibit and was shocked to see the green lawn of the campus being ripped apart! At first I thought, "Oh, no....now what are they destroying downtown?" But this construction has an upside. The DIA is donating sculptures to CCS. They are putting in brand new landscaping and a new sculpture park. It is nice to see that all those tickets sold to attend the opening night went to something. My source on this was a man sitting in a folding chair working the ccs student show so I could be a bit off but I felt his story was believable given the blueprint picture I later found. The man told me that the sculptures were just sitting in the basement storage at the DIA so that's why they wanted to lend them to CCS.
I think that this is a great idea. It will draw more attention to CCS and provide a better campus green for the students and art enthusiasts to frolic in.
