Creating community murals in Ella Fitzgerald Park
Community members and residents join artist Hubert Massey to install the mosaic mural in the Ella Fitzgerald Park. Join us on Thursday, June 14th from 3-7pm for another chance to help build the mural! For more information please see the event flyer.
In collaboration with Fitzgerald community residents, Hubert Massey designed two murals that capture the spirit, strength and history of the Fitzgerald neighborhood. Artist Hubert Massey was commissioned by The Trust for Public Land, a national nonprofit that creates parks and protects land for people, with support from the Kresge Foundation.
Ella Fitzgerald Park is a part of the Fitzgerald Revitalization Project, an initiative led by the City of Detroit to stabilize and strengthen the neighborhood by transforming publicly owned vacant land and buildings into community assets.
Stay tuned for the Ella Fitzgerald Park opening in mid-July!
