The architecture students at Lawrence Tech Detroit Studio, in collaboration with the WGBC, wish to create a network of multi-purpose bike parks where the rich history of West End Detroit will be mapped, narrated and illustrated to highlight the local culture that produced greats like Aretha Franklin, Willie Horton, and the artists who created the Motown Sound.
We received a challenge grant from the Knight Foundation, which will double our funds for the project if we can raise $10,000 by April 30, 2017! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

At our 12th Annual Event, Breakfast on the Boulevard, on November 17, 2016, the West Grand Boulevard Collaborative was presented with the Spirit of Detroit Award.
