“Since I have been in Detroit, It has been a long slow process trying to learn about all the cool people and organizations and events all over town as well as the history of the different neighborhoods.  Every time I meet someone or participate in a project it deepens my connections and understanding of what Detroit is all about.  There is a lot to learn and I think I don’t even know about half of it!  This project has been a joy because I got to meet some people from the Boggs School present and past.  Meeting Arthur Tabb was a great experience partly because as a musician I was delighted to hear what the Detroit music scene was like in the past.  Arthur, or “Red”, is also a very entertaining and positive person to talk to.  He gave me an understanding of how exciting it is for many of the neighbors past and present to see new life at the Sophie Wright building now that it is used as The James and Grace Lee Boggs School.  It was also great to connect with the Talking Dolls studio to do the silkscreen printing.  Ron and the rest of the team are doing great work over there for all the right reasons and I am glad I got to be a part of it.”

The Good Bones Poster Project lifts up beautiful lives being lived in Detroit neighborhoods. 12 different local artists share their unique take on 12 different neighbor-storytellers from one eastside neighborhood in a series of signed, limited-edition fine art screenprints. We’re amplifying a counternarrative about the resilience of the beloved community, through art and connection. Support us by buying posters as they are released each month, or advance-purchase the entire portfolio by clicking here.

Proceeds of The Good Bones Poster Project fund a free multimedia outdoor performance at the Sophie Wright Settlement House in fall of 2017, celebrating everyday stories of perseverance and evolution connected by one Detroit building. Good Bones is an AMP Sponsored Project and winner of the Knight Arts Challenge.
