Heads up local artists. The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy wants you.
It is looking for individuals and artists to perform at the Campbell Terrace, the small-scale outdoor performance space that opened last October along the Dequindre Cut.
Applications are being accepted through February 24 at 6 p.m. Visit http://detroitriverfront.org/CampbellTerrace2017 for more information or to submit an application.
“There’s an abundance of talented individuals throughout our community, so we’re thrilled to provide local artists with a platform from which they can share their work with new audiences,” says Michele Marine, director of programming for the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy.
The Campbell Terrace is covered stage with tiered concrete walls for seating and lush landscaping and is located at the base of the Lafayette Street ramp to the Dequindre Cut between Orleans and St. Aubin Streets. It was commissioned by a $1 million gift from the McGregor Fund to honor the legacy of David Campbell, its former president who passed away in 2014. Campbell was also a founding member of the Conservancy’s board, as well as an avid supporter of arts and culture.
Since it opened last fall the Terrace has hosted impromptu performances by artists. The Conservancy leadership wants to develop this series of performances by local artists.
The Dequindre Cut is an almost two-mile paved pedestrian greenway that stretches from Atwater Street at the Detroit Riverfront to Mack Avenue in Eastern Market. It serves as a lynchpin of the Link Detroit greenway project, which features 20 miles of connected urban pathways extending from the Detroit Riverfront to Eastern Market, and links to the cultural institutions of Midtown and beyond to Hamtramck via walking and biking paths.
