|Congratulations to January Citywide SOUP Winner, Yvette Rock, who brought home $733 for Live Coal Arts Mobile!
The Live Coal Arts Mobile (LCAM) is an 18’ bright red car hauler that has been transforming into a traveling art gallery since spring 2016. The LCAM travels to Detroit neighborhoods to engage residents with the transformative and restorative power of the arts. They offer art-making opportunities for Detroiters—from young children to senior citizens. The Live Coal Collective artist members also put on exhibitions and performances in these neighborhoods. Their special Block pARTies will give residents a chance to engage in the arts right outside of their homes. Unfortunately, in September this year, they experienced a break-in and some of their equipment was stolen. SOUP funds will help them replace their lost items and get the LCAM back up and running!
Thank you to everyone who joined us at Citywide SOUP. Your support helps fund and inspire community projects like Live Coal Arts Mobile and we couldn't do it without you. Couldn't make it in January? Save the date for our next Citywide dinner on March 4th!
