Artists Give Detroit Bus Shelters A Makeover

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - A program called Doorstops Detroit is allowing local artists and others to build city bus shelters out of discarded or donated signs and other materials.

The Detroit News reports that Craig Wilkins is working with artists on the project. He teaches at the University of Michigan's Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

The program is partially funded by a National Endowment for the Arts grant. Six shelters were built recycled materials earlier this year and four more could go up in the next month.

Erik Howard, founder of The Alley Project in southwest Detroit, helped get local artists to put their personal touches on the doors.
