The Detroit Historical Museum is offering FREE admission on 6/12/21 for any guests who add a rock (like the ones kids hide in parks) to the Covid-19 Memorial Garden!
Recognizing the many losses suffered by our community in the COVID-19 pandemic, the Detroit Historical Museum has dedicated a public memorial garden in front of Legends Plaza. Over the summer, everyone is invited to contribute to the memorial by painting a rock or two and adding it to the growing pile of colorful stones. Commemorate a lost loved one or use your design to simply celebrate life. When the garden closes at the end of the summer, some of the stones will be added to the Detroit Historical Society’s permanent collection as artifacts from this time.
The garden is located in front of the curved wall at Woodward and Kirby. It’s open now and will remain in place throughout 2021. Participate by adding decorated stones any time or tagging us in photos of your stones on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We will be adding all the digitally submitted stones to an online photo archive.
