The City of Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship, Cranbrook Art Museum, the TCF Center, and the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy have revealed a large-scale art installation that features hundreds of colourful fabric pouches created by southeast Michigan residents to help them heal from the depth of loss felt during the pandemic.
More than 1,200 regional Detroit residents created personal pieces of art in honour of their losses to comprise the overall piece. The installation will be on display through August 2022.
„We are proud to host a piece that will mean so much to our community and the perseverance they have.“
"Our team at the TCF Center is always amazed at the impact of a new art installation", said Karen Totaro, general manager TCF Center/ASM Global. "We are proud to host a piece that will mean so much to our community and the perseverance they have."
The public art installation was designed to provide support and healing for residents who have experienced all kinds of loss – such as lost loved ones, lost homes, lost jobs, and lost hope — during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is open to all regional residents who experienced physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, occupational, and environmental loss.www.tcfcenterdetroit.com/covid-memorial-art-installation-helps-residents-heal-in-tcf-center
