Michigan Chronicle - DTE Energy Foundation Announces Winners of Its Summer Jobs Program Video Contest
Aug. 16, 2013 DTE Energy Foundation Announces Winners of Its…
"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.

This summer, we employed 11 students through Detroit’s Summer Youth Employment program to work with CAP Faculty member, Joye Ofei, in Brightmoor. As you can see, they’ve cleaned up the area and gotten a great start on the mural portion of their project.
Stay tuned for more updates and pictures of their progress!
Join us this Thursday, June 20th from 4-6pm for our final major youth art exhibition of the season.
