‘DETROIT SKYBRIDGE’ IS ANOTHER SIGN ARTISTS ARE BRINGING THAT HARD-DONE-BY CITY BACK

“Detroit Skybridge” by Phillip K. Smith III connects two of that city’s most iconic buildings, One Woodward & the Guardian Building. The 100-foot-long 16th floor connector becomes a floating bar of light hovering over downtown streets.  The artist has programmed the lights to change patterns, creating an impression that the colours are moving along the length of the bridge. “By night, it will become a beacon for the beauty, creativity, and innovation of DETROIT,” says Smith.
