FUN THINGS TO DO IN DETROIT »

The vandalized ceramic sculpture by Jerome Ferretti expresses the horror of its damage.  Seen in the background is the Masonic Temple. 

Jerome Ferretti Sculpture

While the arts in Detroit have flourished amid the ruined state of the city, this flowering generally has not put money the pockets of the artists.  Detroit's money elite and major cultural institutions suffer from a satellite mentality which causes them to look to New York or some other place for the acquisition of their culture. As a result both the arts and architecture of their metropolis suffer.

For culture to thrive in any locality, it requires great artists and great patrons.  Detroit is sadly lacking in the latter and to this lack of aestheticism can be traced some of the appalling destruction of a fabulous architectural heritage.
