Detroit's well-dressed Spirit
May 8, 2020 10:31 AM Subscribe
The Spirit of Detroit is a monument featuring a 26' bronze statue holding a family group in one hand, and a sphere symbolizing God in the other. Created by Michigan sculptor Marshall Fredericks in the second half of the 1950s, it's located at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center (formerly the Detroit City-County Building) on Woodward in Detroit. Since 1997, it's occasionally been dressed in sports jerseys when local professional teams make playoffs, as well as in other clothing marking notable local events. It's currently showing support of Henry Ford Hospital's White Ribbon Campaign to recognize and thank essential health-care and other workers.
