Availability: In stock

The Detroit plate highlights neighborhoods, schools, museums and cultural centers in the downtown area of the largest city in the state of Michigan.  The city’s population has been growing again in recent years as Google, Shinola, Redbull and many others set up offices in the city.  There has also been an influx of architects and artists who are focused on revitalizing the city’s design landscape.  A unique feature of this plate is the secondary green color that highlights the remarkable number of abandoned, fallow lots throughout the city.  While raising awareness of its high vacancy past, this plate looks to illustrate the potential of Detroit's transformed landscape.  



Our ninth series of City Plates includes Detroit, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, and Portland.  This collection celebrates a new generation of artists and creatives, the growing communities of DIYers, makers, and tinkerers that are collectively revitalizing their cities.  A renaissance is under way as these cities’ abandoned spaces are being re-occupied by art show pop-ups, art galleries, bicycle shops, coffee roasters, breweries, production houses for hand-crafted goods,  and many other start-up businesses.
