Strings of Life

I generally don't write long captions. However this was a day that will probably stick with me for a long time. It started with a tour of the 71 Garfield building to use as a gallery. The owners took a burnt out building and renovated it into one that is certified “Green” due to the additions of solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling. It was a day hanging around with good friends who love Detroit. These aren't people that just say it and maybe go to a couple Tigers games a year. These are people that are doing what they can to bring the city back. I'm talking about people taking it upon themselves to conceptualize and implement exhibits to showcase the art the people who love this city have to offer amongst other things..

 

To top it all off, we explored the Farwell building and upon making it to the roof, I looked out to view the city on the beautiful day it was and could hear the Detroit Electronic Music Festival like I had a radio next to my ear. Its days like this that you just let soak in.
