A recent MLive arti­cle looks at Stamps fac­ulty Nick Tobier and Roland Graf’s Bright­moor Run­way project, which will trans­form a sec­tion of a bro­ken side­walk in Detroit’s Bright­moor com­mu­nity into an illu­mi­nated run­ning, play, and exer­cise track.

A pair of pro­fes­sors plan to turn a sec­tion of bro­ken side­walk in north­west Detroit into an illu­mi­nated track for run­ning, play and exercise.

With fund­ing from a national orga­ni­za­tion that builds play­grounds around the coun­try, the Bright­moor Run­way project will trans­form a stretch of dilap­i­dated side­walk behind Detroit Com­mu­nity High School in the Bright­moor neighborhood.

Pro­fes­sor Nick Tobier and Assis­tant Pro­fes­sor Roland Graf, both of the Uni­ver­sity of Michigan’s Stamps School of Art & Design, recently learned their project was selected as a final­ist out of a pool of more than 1,000 entries in KaBOOM!‘s Play Every­where Challenge.”
