    Art in Detroit Public Spaces The Detroit area is home to numerous significant works of public art in its parks, libraries, schools, and hospitals. Art in Detroit Public Places considers more than150 pieces, organized by section into six geographical districts of metropolitan Detroit. Each section is accompanied by a comprehensive street map for easy planning of walking or driving tours, and the artworks in it are presented with individual descriptive histories and photographs. The book includes a page on Marcia Wood, who is the subject of "Scaled Up: Sculpture by Marcia Wood," now at the KIA. Check the availability of Art in Detroit Public Places in the KIA library.
