Attention Motor City writers, poets, painters, sculptors, ceramicists, metal smiths, photographers, printmakers, zinesters, bloggers, architects, et cetera, et cetera: Next year, Kresge Arts in Detroit will give 18 artists $25,000 awards to spend however they like to realize their creative visions. 2015's fellowships will focus on the literary and visual arts.
