Detroit Temple – The Dream Project

It just seems fitting somehow, considering this year’s theme and your 2008 street names, that what we’ve lovingly dubbed America’s motor city, Detroit, is awash with frenzied Burning Man activity. (For more on the street names, check out Larry Harvey’s recent post about them.)

So, if you happen to be passing by Detroit anytime soon, perhaps on an extended road trip to the Black Rock Desert, then stop by Peace Park to see its newest addition, The Temple Of The American Dream. A collaborative effort among the Detroit Burning Man community, the Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF), David Best and Detroit community organizations have served to facilitate the realization of a shared dream–to reclaim the historic Old Redford / Brightmoor neighborhood from urban blight and gift a new public space to the people of Detroit.
