This wall installation, made with a router to cut grooves into drywall, is the full scale outline of a public sculpture that stands for many as a monument to the Detroit Rebellion of 1967. The uprising, sparked by police brutality, lasted five days and resulted in numerous deaths, injuries, arrests, and significant damage. It has been a scar on the cities memory. And Jack Ward the artist who made the sculpture denies creating a memorial.
Media: Installation, flat black paint on drywall with routered incisions
Dimensions: 10 x 8 feet
