We want to thank everyone for their support through 2012. It’s been an incredible year for Collision Works. Looking back we’ve had a name change, successful community workshops, built an impressive board of advisors, created a sustainable business plan, and now we are so proud to let you know that on Sunday, December 30th, The Detroit Free Press wrote a year-end feature on Collision Works and Shel Kimen.
“It takes some imagination to envision how Shel Kimen wants to transform a barren piece of land surrounded by vacant, graffiti-marked buildings just blocks from the vibrancy of Detroit’s Eastern Market. Kimen, 42, a Chicago-raised Michigan State University graduate with an eclectic background in advertising, social media, art and the Internet, is a transplanted New Yorker who wants to reinvent herself career-wise by repurposing an acre of Detroit.” You can read the whole article here.
It was supportive of our work and such a positive portrayal. We could not ask for more. Please keep believing and helping us spread the word. It’s working! We are making something from nothing that will add value to lots and lots of people. Warmest wishes to you all for a beautiful 2013.
