We know Palmer Park inspires walkers and bikers and gardeners. Now it will inspire the creativity of visitors young and old with a series of free artist-led workshops geared toward sparking the magic and artistic spirit within us all.
Our new program, Magic of Art in Palmer Park (MAPP), is funded by a Community Development Advocates of Detroit (CDAD) placemaking grant to People for Palmer Park (PFPP). It extends a small tantalizing portion of the to the summer and fall seasons and will help identify Palmer Park on the 'MAPP' as a place for creating and enjoying art in the park.
Register for this event and reserve your spot on our Facebook event:
It’s called Summer Solstice Eco-Dying with Mandisa Smith, who is the co-owner of Detroit Fiber Works in Detroit. Using natural dyes and materials, participants (of all ages and skill levels) will learn how to create beautiful designs on individual silk squares, as well as work on a group project of a larger fabric mural to exhibit in the park.
