Artist Hubert Massey will be returning to Grandmont Rosedale this July to install seven more mosaics on the new dugouts at Stoepel Park. If you’ve driven by or visited Stoepel this past year, you have seen the beautiful public art work of Hubert Massey and the Grandmont Rosedale kids who helped him design and install the mosaic. Hubert Massey has installed public artwork all over Southeast Michigan. His mosaics, murals and sculptures have become beloved parts of Peck Park on Brush Street, the pedestrian bridge over 75 in Southwest Detroit, the Atheneum Hotel, Children’s Hospital, the Federal Reserve Bank, Campus Martius, the Detroit Athletic Club, and the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church. Installing seven more mosaics at Stoepel Park will be the largest outdoor collection of Hubert Massey’s work. JOIN THE CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN This is quite an ambitious project, so we are asking for your help. The Mosaic in the Park crowdfunding campaign has the goal of raising $13,000 by June 19. If we reach this goal, these donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. Additional funding is also being provided by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, (MCACA). Donors can access the campaign by going to patronicity.com/mosaicsinthepark project. Alternatively, donors can contribute cash or write a check with an indication that the funds are to go to “Mosaics in the Park” and either drop it by GRDC or mail it to GRDC, 19800 Grand River, Detroit, MI 48223. Incentives are offered to those donating $25, $100, $250, and $500. Volunteers and especially Rosedale Grandmont Little League players are invited to join Hubert Massey at Stoepel Park on July 15, 16, and 17 to help install the mosaics. When finished, the dugouts will be an outdoor museum of public art dedicated to our neighborhood and our kids!
