I had the opportunity to spend a little time at the Artist Village while working with Motor City Blight Busters this weekend. The Artist Village first entered my radar when I heard the art director and founder of Public Art Workz (P.A.W.Z.), Chazz Miller, speak at TEDxDetroit last year.
From their website:
The mission of Artist Village and Public Art Workz (P.A.W.Z.) is to create bold, innovative community redevelopment projects that use the arts, culture, creativity and innovation, as a catalyst for reinventing and revitalizing the communities of Old Redford and Northwest Detroit, Michigan, into a multi discipline, arts, education, entertainment and cultural community.
This place is pretty damn cool and I can’t wait to check it out more thoroughly and explore the murals of Chazz Miller.
For now, I’ll just share this small glimpse of the fabulousness that is the Artist Village with you.
