The Neighborhood Project

"Artists Mitch Cope and Gina Reichert, aka Design 99, started "The Neighborhood Project" in the Walter Gibbs Gallery on Friday, Dec. 18. The artists illustrate how art can transform neighborhoods, both visually and socially, by looking at how public space and aesthetics can be integrated.

The Project stems from the work Cope and Reichert have undertaken in their Detroit community. Beginning with their Power House Project, they have put into practice ideas about the aesthetics of everyday life and the integration of art and design into the rethinking and rebuilding of neighborhoods."

The exhibition is on display at the Detroit Institute of Arts through March 28th.
