Detroit-themed art auction benefits Children’s Hospital of Michigan

March 14, 2014


Have you noticed the “Man in the City” sculpture installations around Detroit? The colorful silhouettes can be found lurking on rooftops all around town. They started popping up in 2008, and a part of the campaign are “Man in the City”-themed fundraisers to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, a program that integrates art activities into the hospital.

Wayne State students will host the “Heart of Art” fundraiser to support the Sauve Art Foundation and Children’s Hospital of Michigan Healing Arts Program at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 28 at Harry’s Bar in Detroit. “Man in the City”-inspired posters designed by iconic artists Gary Grimshaw and Carl Lundgren will be auctioned off, as well as other local business merchandise. Check out a video explaining the project, and learn more on the Foundation’s website.
