The West End Art Project Grand Reveal
Two popular Sandwich gathering spots are home to four new community art pieces thanks to funding by the Gordie Howe International Bridge Community Benefits Plan. The four installations were developed as part of Life After Fifty’s West End Art Project, which received $20,000 in Community Benefit Plan funding earlier this year. The project targeted youth involvement and the development of art that would reflect the history and culture of the Sandwich community.
Community Benefits Plan Supports New Southwest Detroit Park
Visitors to the new Fort Street Bridge Park in southwest Detroit can learn more about the area’s history, thanks to a sculpture funded by the Gordie Howe International Bridge Community Benefits Plan.
Serving as a centerpiece for the park, the sculpture called “March On” is comprised of salvaged metal materials from the former, historic bascule bridge that spanned the river at the Fort Street Bridge Park site. The sculpture symbolizes the 1932 Hunger March and restoration of the Rouge River, which is transitioning to an important recreational amenity.Learn More
