This building, on the corner of Holden and Forsythe streets where the Edsel Ford and John C. Lodge freeways intersect in central Detroit, housed large studios and living spaces for a number of artists. Using studios as residences was unauthorized but the zoning violations went unnoticed or were overlooked. I had a studio on the second floor of the building for most of the 1970s.


This photo was taken by my long-time friend Kathleen Gross, a painter and photographer who occuped a studio on the second floor. She resides now in San Francisco.
