This map comes from the AREA Chicago project called “A People’s Atlas.” In Detroit, the blank map templates were handed out at the US Social Forum in the summer of 2010. I assume that is where Kevin Joy, best known for window graffiti in the United Artists Building, received a copy and completed the map with a great deal of information. A series of the maps from 22 different cities were published in “Notes for A People’s Atlas.”
I have to say that I’m not a big fan of the very odd Detroit outline that AREA Chicago employed as well as the absence of Belle Isle. I wonder who created the template for Detroit. Do you want to #MapDetroit? Click on the Participate link!
