THE AVENUE OF FASHION, DETROIT
Kim collaborated with the city of Detroit to implement an ArtPlace America Placemaking grant, with the goal of making Detroit’s once-bustling Avenue of Fashion a popular destination again. In order to grow the story of this vibrant community, Kim activated vacant shops with engaging public art, memorable environments, and rich participatory programming. She selected artists, local and international, to work with entrepreneurs to build out each of their spaces, while developing a rich, participatory program of events for the Avenue’s debut during the Detroit Design Festival.
