Guardians of Detroit: Architectural Sculpture in the Motor City

Detroit is home to amazing architectural sculpture-a host of gargoyles, grotesques, and other silent guardians that watch over the city from high above its streets and sidewalks, often unnoticed or ignored by the people passing below. In Guardians of Detroit: Architectural Sculpture in the Motor City*, historian and photographer Jeff Morrison documents these incredible features alongside the lives of all those who created these wonderful works of architectural art, in a city that began as a small frontier fort and quickly grew to become a major metropolis and industrial titan. This program will be presented via Zoom.
