Greg Crawford Detroit Free Press Published 4:01 AM EDT Oct 24, 2018 You’ve heard for a while now about the larger-than-life murals, the installations and the art happenings in Detroit's hipster havens and you’ve perhaps been intrigued by some of the curious artist names like DECO23, FEL3000ft, Malt, Monster Steve and SWFreddy. Starting Sunday at the Janice Charach Gallery, Detroit street art heads indoors for “OUTSIDE IN,” a curated show featuring the work of 12 artists who have been literally changing the face of the Motor City through massive public art projects. Organizers are billing it as a rare chance to take in the work of the sometimes-elusive street artists in one place and at one time. Most of them are expected to be in attendance at an opening reception running 1-4 p.m. Sunday at the gallery. The exhibit continues through Dec. 6.

Jennifer Dixon Detroit Free Press Published 11:11 p.m. UTC Jul 19, 2018 At one end of Alpine Street, near Joy Road on Detroit's west side, Georgeia Elder and a friend live in a leaky trailer, their yard cluttered with a boat and a Cadillac Escalade with four ladders on the roof, a shopping cart and a lawn mower, a folding chair and a metal headboard. A pit bull, Lady, laps up spaghetti and gravy from a takeout container. At the other end of this short stretch of Alpine, near Tireman Avenue, a woman known as Spankie lives in a house with a dog she calls "my baby." A heart-shaped sign hangs from the front door that says "Bless Our Home." A handwritten sign instructs the postal carrier to put her mail in a box tucked into a milk crate next to the porch stairs. A scent of straw and animals hangs in the air. These occupants don't own the properties where they live.

Christine MacDonald and Mike Wilkinson The Detroit News Published 10:11 p.m. UTC Jun 13, 2018 Detroit — Nearly half of the owners of Detroit's 305,000 properties failed to pay their tax bills last year, exacerbating a punishing cycle of declining revenues and diminished services for a city in a financial crisis, according to a Detroit News analysis of government records. The News reviewed more than 200,000 pages of tax documents and found that 47 percent of the city's taxable parcels are delinquent on their 2011 bills. Some $246.5 million in taxes and fees went uncollected, about half of which was due Detroit and the rest to other entities, including Wayne County, Detroit Public Schools and the library. Delinquency is so pervasive that 77 blocks had only one owner who paid taxes last year, The News found. Many of those who don't pay question why they should in a city that struggles to light its streets or keep police on them. "Why pay taxes?" … [Read more...] about From the archives: Half of Detroit property owners don’t pay taxes
