In Honour of Mary Chase Stratton is located in the Cadillac Center station of the Detroit People Mover. It was created by Diana Kulisek and Pewabic Pottery using a combination of old Pewabic tiles and new ones made from old molds.
The installation is named for Mary Chase Perry Stratton, the founder of Pewabic Pottery. The studio’s work can be found throughout the Detroit metro area; the Guardian Building is an especially amazing example of Pewabic’s work.
Other art installations in DPM stations that caught my eye: Untitled by Farley Tobin, Baubien Passage by Glen Michaels, Voyage by Gerome Kamrowski, and “D” for Detroit by Joyce Kozloff. See also my photos of the weirdly futuristic DPM itself.
