Art After Arson: Rising From The Ashes (Video)

A Detroit-based artist transforms a burned house into a public artwork.

Artist Catie Newell leads nonprofit organization The Imagination Station in their shared effort to clean up 2230 and 2236 14th street, two blighted structures on Roosevelt Park facing the ruins of Michigan Central Station in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood.  One of the two houses being rehabilitated, previously burned down by arson, has been transformed into an impressive public art space as seen above.

Watch Newell explain her work in the video below:
