Each Thursday, Friends of Spaulding Court puts on a fundraiser

Hi neighbors,

Each Thursday, Friends of Spaulding Court puts on a fundraiser called Soup at Spaulding. It's a way to support the rehab effort at Spaulding Court as well as other projects happening throughout the community. Half the money we raise goes to Spaulding Court and the other half goes to a project that is selected by a vote of the dinner guests each week. There is also an online component to the whole thing, you can check out a campaign we're running currently here.

In any case, the $5 suggested donation gets you amazing soup, salad, Avalon bread, and a vote for one of the projects that are being presented.

Artists in Residence
Remix | By LINDA YABLONSKY | September 22, 2010

Rome has nothing on Detroit. The industrial ruins in this American city are at least as spectacular, and largely unmatched in scale anywhere in the United States. They are also fertile ground for a growing number of artists like Scott Hocking, who find inspiration in the tatters. To make his large-format photographs, Hocking has built anomalous sculptures in two ghostly auto plants, Fisher Body and Packard, both designed by Detroit’s leading industrial architect, Albert Kahn.

Bike rack for Spirit of Hope!

People,

The Project: One bicycle rack for the Spirit of Hope courtyard, made from recycled materials and supporting a local metal artist. A unique bicycle project in the heart of Detroit!

The Good News: We won the matching funds at the most recent Soup at Spaulding! (Right here at SoH every Thursday night at 7pm. Dinner is $5) That means we can go ahead with the project if we have enough funds to finish.

The Michigan Central Depot, Detroit's most famous ruin, is inspiring a uniquely Motor City-style example of economic development that generates hope -- and frustration -- in the people behind it.
The 18-floor abandoned train station, which closed in 1988, gained national attention for its decaying Beaux Arts design. Last year, the Detroit City Council ordered it torn down.
