The Community Wing Project: Giving our youth wings to fly!!
Local artists, non-profits, and area businesses are partnering together in support of Ypsilanti’s youth - our future leaders. The goal of the Community Wing Project is to visually show our youth that Ypsilanti is here to help them fly.
Together with Educate Youth, Ypsilanti Community Schools, and supportive citizens, a feather template was sent around for all to color in/get creative with. Once feathers have been collected, the teens at Educate Youth will construct into a pair of life-size wings to be showcased at Go! Ice Cream from June 2-16, 2017. (10 N Washington St, Ypsilanti)
June 2 is the first annual Ypsi Pride in coordination with First Fridays Ypsilanti. To help celebrate and support Ypsi Pride, various artists will also showcase their wings: Corner Health Center’s front window will have wings by Zeno Nuff Said; Educate Youth will have a wing mural by Joe LaVigne; and Ypsi Real will have chalk wings on their back wall.
