Street closures, new plaza? Radical changes could be coming to layout of Detroit's Cultural Center

Radical changes to the City’s cultural center, which could include permanent street closures, reconfiguring lanes on Woodward Avenue and changing building entrances for some of the area’s most prominent institutions, could be coming in the next few years in an effort to create more accessible public space.

With public input, City of Detroit Planning Director Maurice Cox says three design firms from across the world are participating in an “ideas competition” to give the cultural center “its sense of place.”


Documenting DETROIT hosts photo exhibitions this weekend

Documenting DETROIT, a fellowship for local photographers to create authentic narratives about the city of Detroit, will host two presentations Friday and Saturday at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History as part of the annual DLECTRICITY fest.

On the Farnsworth lawn of the museum, a 100-foot-wide projector will display multimedia stories from the program’s 2017 and 2016 fellows. Onlookers are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets.
