One of Detroit’s hidden gems, this outdoor sculpture garden, created by Detroit’s Premier outside artist Tim Burke, is made from a collection of building pieces scavenged from demolished historical buildings that were once iconic landmarks of the city.
The iconic buildings incorporated into the sculpture garden includes the Detroit College of Law, the J.L Hudson’s Department Store, the Packard Motor Car Company, and the Studebaker Car Company, to name a few—not to mention the ten tons of granite Burke recovered from the renovation of the Detroit Institute of Arts, that he used to make tables and benches. He also makes jewelry out of copper from the buildings, which is sold in the Detroit Institute of Art gift shop.
