These are some of the working/creative spaces on The Alley Project and the people that animate them. Young Nation staff/board, Stitching Up Detroit-ers, artists, mentors, and youth plan and create weekly on TAP all year long thanks to a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces… some activated within the past 12 months!
A quick look in the lots at TAP233 shows off a couple new pieces complements of the unseasonably warm weather the past several weeks.
An artist visiting from Germany stopped by and painted “CryOne” on his way back to the airport after a week in Detroit on business.
A quick look at some artwork spotted at TAP this Fall.
Young neighbors from Schaefer and Fort St found their way to TAP this weekend. One was looking forward to beginning his first semester away at college starting Tuesday… good luck and hope we see you again soon!
The Motor City Rockerz give the boards a facelift at the TAP233 lots. Mav and son do the finishing work to keep the benches looking fresh. Thanks Rockerz!!
Back To School time is right around the corner! In between playing hard and watching artists create murals the youth decorated the fronts and backs (and some insides) of notebooks for school with collage.
SUAMP (Southwest Urban Arts Mural Project) spent some casual time at TAP this week as Benny and his son performed some routine maintenance to the benches.
fter work this summer several SUAMP artists have been coming over to paint and this time their instructor, Ms J, came with them.
She will be leaving Michigan very soon and her youth (and community partners) are grateful for the passion and excellence that SUAMP has displayed with her leadership.
Open Studio returns to Friday evenings from 6-8p at #TheAlleyProject. Crayons, cameras, and puppets animated the lots today.
The ELCA’s Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE) visited The Alley Project today for some history, a tour, and workshop.
The youth are in town for the ELCA’s large gathering in Detroit this week that will have 25,000 youth from around the nation in town for workshops and service projects
Thanks for spending time with us and hope to see you again soon.
