This is another special day for the residents of Brightmoor and the Brightmoor Community Center. Please RSVP your attendance as we will have reserve seating for our invited guests. AAA Pocket Park is a private park owned and managed by the Brightmoor Community

Earth and Sky Repose, a community+public art:DETROIT project

A group of high school students are creating mosaic glass benches and glass &  stone sculptures that will be placed in the Christian Community Garden located in Detroit’s Northend Community. Other components included in the project are a dry stone river bed and stone cistern (reservoir). The project will sit upon a water collection system that will capture and direct rain water to the underground cistern.

Each Saturday in March, students are working in the ceramic studios at the College for Creative Studies (CCS). In April, they will begin working in the garden and participate in the construction of the dry river bed pavement, stone cistern, and the earthen berm (preparing it for planting). Students are working with a master stone mason, professional glass artist, multiple talented contractors, and other Northend youth.
