Hopscotch Detroit: 4 Miles of Community Art

August 17, 2012

Wedge Detroit, a new design collective made up of Dylan Box (BFA ‘12), Ellen Rutt (BFA ‘12), Laura Willming (BSE ‘12), and Ajooni Sethi (BA ‘12), will be breaking a world record for the longest Hopscotch course by laying down 4 miles of chalk squares during the Detroit Design Festival in mid-September. The course, covering sidewalks from downtown to midtown Detroit will bring out community organizations, businesses, artists, families, and kids in the Detroit area to make a giant collaborative art piece supporting physical activity, creativity, community engagement and play. The 4-mile-long course will laid out throughout the week of the Detroit Design Festival (Spetember 19th-23rd). On Saturday, September 22nd, organizations and individuals will convene to draw murals, play games, and celebrate community.
