I read a few stories in this morning's Detroit News that are worth sharing. The efforts by these artists to work together to bring something to life out what appears to be dead is exemplary. If they could only bottle their creativity, hope-against-hope foolishness, and resourcefulness and release it into the water supply...

With these two locations and the artist community over by the Russel Industrial Complex, the Art Scene might become Detroit's new closet industry.

Art has been Detroit's 'closet industry' for many years. Nothing against Art, I'm a supporter and collector, but Art isn't going to be the saviour. Detroit, the city and its citizens, don't give Art enough due for its importance to a (this) community.

I'm right near Artist Village and I can't wait to see a coffee house up. Would to find a relaxing hang out spot to create and enjoy a nice drink without driving way out.

Thanks for the links.
