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.

This group mural was created by students during the culminating event celebrating Black History Month at the Henry Ford Academy School for Creative Studies. It took the students 1.5 hours to complete from start to finish. During performances by other student groups, our students worked on the mural outside the view of the audience. When the performances were complete, the 20’ moveable wall was turned around for all to see. It was received with an audible gasp of wonderment and amazement at what the students had just completed. The mural has since been sealed and will be wrapped in plastic to preserve the student work.


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!
