Movement Electronic Music Festival art installations find homes in Detroit this summer


If you went to Movement Electronic Music Festival a few weeks ago, you most likely noticed six interactive art installations set up in Hart Plaza. Facilitated by Community Arts Moving Projects Detroit (CAMP Detroit), the sculptures are now set up around downtown for people to enjoy all summer. Projects include "Ernst, King of Cats," a giant puppet that can be manipulated with ropes, and "The Good-Time Light-Hearted Lean Peaks," psychedelic pyramids that pulse with light (read our interview with the Peaks' creators here.)

Check out photos of all the installations below, as well as a map on where to find them this summer.
