360 Detroit Art House

360 Art House is a space that is dedicated to the development and expression of creativity for individuals of all ages. Located within walking distance of 360 Park amidst the Virginia Park neighborhood, The Art House was created for residents in response to their desire for community, gathering space. It allows expanded activity and its continuation during inclement weather when outdoor activity is not favorable. It reflects 360 Detroit, Inc.’s vision of neighborhood revitalization and quality of life improvement. 360 Art House’s design and décor is a brilliant exhibition of community inspired and produced art as evidenced by the backyard mural.

With funding from Detroit Regional Chamber General Motors NeighborHUB grant, we have developed a space that will continually promote all forms and expressions of art. Graphic/Decorative art (i.e. painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.), Traditional/Theatrical art (i.e. poetry, storytelling, drama, music, etc.) and all art forms that showcase ethnic diversity and promote literacy are part of its focus. Programming, funded by Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan and the NeighborHUB grant, also will include a span of culinary and fitness opportunities for all ages. 360 Art House will continually be a space for unlimited creativity and communal collaborations.

360 Park

360 Park, located at Byron and Virginia Park, is our largest revitalization project which fulfills part of the community’s desire for safe spaces. 360 Park will repurpose several lots to develop an attractive, pocket park for community enjoyment. It feature playscapes for children to play and gathering spaces that will provide positive engagement for the community.

360 Detroit 1167 W Euclid Beautification

1167 W Euclid

Developed in 2018 after the demolition of a blighted house, we acquired and repurposed 1167 W. Euclid, its second vacant lot. The lot was developed as a space for small scale community enjoyment and engagement. The space is characterized by its seasoned shade trees amidst newly planted saplings and perennials. Rose bushes, flowering trees and a variety of plants provide three season color. Picnic tables and an artistically decorated free library extend an invitation for intimate gathering and community exchange.

Holland Maze

Adopting the island located at the Lodge Freeway and Virginia Park for neighborhood beautification, The Holland Maze will be a playful adaptation of the tulip fields found in the Netherlands. Characterized by its bright colors, the maze will consist of mounds of tulips, lavender, geraniums, and other perennials. The maze portion, comprised of narrow grass paths, will allow up close enjoyment of the colorful plantings. Check it out Sprint 2021!
