This fall Anya Sirota and Jean Louis Farges of Detroit- and Ann Arbor-based Anya Sirota + AKOAKI will begin a collaboration with FPAP and Metawanenee Hills Neighborhood Association to instigate programming for Cook School, at the northern end of Grand Traverse Street.
August’s Flint Public Art Parade brings us to the winding streets around Ramona Park in historic Metawanene Hills neighborhood, featuring a large-scale fabric piece hanging from the eaves of Cook School created by Montana-native Amanda Browder in collaboration with area textile artists Ariel Sammone, Ash Arder, and Gregory Hatch, and alongside Metawanene Hills Neighborhood Association co-chairs Wendy Johnson and Bill Hammond.
