Art Gallery
“Free, uniquely Detroit outdoor art exhibit. This is uniquely Detroit. Although much of the houses have fallen prey to arson, people from all over the world still enjoy blocks of a dilapidated neighborhood turned into a magical, child-like art project.”

Building
“The Guardian Building is a landmark U.S. skyscraper, located within the Financial District. Built in 1928-1929, the building is a bold example of Art Deco architecture, including art moderne designs. The building has undergone recent award-winning renovations. It was designated a National Historic Landmark on June 29, 1989, and the associated Detroit Financial District is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Guardian building includes retail and a tourist gift shop. FYI--The Guardian Building is on my top 10 un-touristy things to see and do in Detroit. ”
