The "Doors" Project
 
What is the "Doors" Project??

The Kmart Headquarters building will be torn down in June to make way for the new Pavilions of Troy. As a way to commemorate this historic building, the interior steel doors will be saved so that they can be turned into works of art.  The doors can be bent, re-shaped, painted or cut into pieces and made into jewelry or fabricated into sculptures.   The final works will be auctioned at a special fund raising event (artist will receive a portion of the proceeds).

Artists from across the metro area will be participating including members of the BBAC and the Detroit Artists Market.  This should prove to be a very exciting event!

The Chelsea Center for the Arts had a similar "Doors" project a few years ago Chelsea Doors Project .
