Funding Unsuccessful This project’s funding goal was not reached on .

We all know that in this specific time in Detroit there are new ways to achieve realistic, meaningful and fantastic creative projects.

This will be a collaborative effort of 25 different creative people to create a public playground, picnic area, garden and art sculpture park. How awesome would it be to picnic amidst gardens and art while people play ball and children swing on swings?! There will be $2,000 per artist or group to propose ideas and turn them into reality. By a two month process of curating and planning the proposed area by different artists, gardeners and general purveyors of peace and meaning, we will transform an unused field into a place for community, enjoying art, letting our children play and rocking Detroit Spirit. The park will be called Le Tigre Park of course in tribute to the old Tiger Stadium, the original proposed site. It has been confirmed after many hours on the phone and many emails, that it is too late for proposals for the Tiger Stadium site. I am currently checking on sites in Rivertown and Brush Park. I would totally picnic in Brush park! I am a curator and artist in the city of Detroit who wants to show the world that with $50K we can do awesomeness in our neighborhood. Keep looking, more updates will be added daily about planning and artists involved. KRISTINE DIVEN, Chair of the Arts Committee of the Rivertown Detroit Association, will help curate arts projects and proposals. Want to get involved? Have a great immovable sculpture idea? Great gardener? Shoot me an email at
