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.


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!

Redford Branch Mural by DNAC

The image in the article includes the mural high school students apart of our Detroit Neighborhood Arts Corps (DNAC) program created last year at the Redford Branch Library. Students worked with local Detroit artists to create a whimsical and literacy inspired mural.

Below is an excerpt from the article:

"McDonald’s has come up with a new “happy meal.” It’s helping children fill up on reading.

McDonald’s Books & Backpacks program offers local grade school children incentives for checking out books and runs through the end of 2012.  It is designed to encourage reading and build on the reading skills children acquire in school.  McDonald’s extended the program to eight libraries in five additional communities throughout metro Detroit.

The new participating libraries include the City of Eastpointe Memorial Library, Harper Woods Public Library, Oak Park Public Library, Pontiac Public Library, the four Ypsilanti District Library branches and its bookmobile. The McDonald’s Books & Backpacks program was first introduced in June 2010 in partnership with Detroit Public Library and all of its branches.”
