Check out this video from last summer’s Detroit Neighborhood Arts Corps (DNAC) project in Brightmoor. Long time CAP student, Brittany, shares her experiences as a Detroit Summer Youth Employee on the Brightmoor 360 Degree Mural project. You can see the mural for yourself at the corner of Burt & Lyndon in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood.

Students in Detroit Neighborhood Arts Corps (DNAC) created several metal butterflies to add to the growing butterfly garden around the corner from the Brightmoor Community Center (BCC) during the Fall semester.

Now they are changing their focus and preparing to do something BIG at the Detroit Public Library, Redford Branch. Stay tuned for more information!

There is still room to enroll in this class. Call Community Arts Partnerships Assistant Director of Education & Outreach, Larry Lunsford, at 313-664-1550 for more information.

Michigan Chronicle - DTE Energy Foundation Announces Winners of Its Summer Jobs Program Video Contest

"Detroiters Richard McCall, 17, and Elijah Ramey, 16, won first- and second-place awards respectively. Both of the short videos captured the gratifying experience of helping to paint a mural in the middle of Detroit’s Brightmoor community. McCall and Ramey were employed by the College for Creative Studies over the summer as part of the Grow Detroit’s Young Talent program."

In addition to creating award-winning short videos, our students transformed the building you see in the background from a burnt-out abandoned eye-sore into a 360degree mural they designed themselves. You can see it for yourself at the corner of Lyndon & Burt in Detroit’s Brightmoor Neighborhood.
