Excerpt from the essay by Dick Goody: Detroit, poised post-bankruptcy to reinvent itself from its rustbelt behemoth past towards a post-industrial center for diversity and creativity, is at a historical crossroads. The fact that Steven Kuypers and Steven McShane formed a partnership, acquired a large enough real estate complex in which to operate a production facility, and successfully tracked down the necessary machinery and equipment for its realization could really have only happened right here, right now. Anywhere else in the world it would be hard to imagine.


Catalog of an exhibition held at the Oakland University Art Gallery, March 7 - April 5, 2015. Contains essay by Dick Goody.
