It May Be You

Clawson is one of those walkable, hometowny kinds of places. And the mission of The Clawson Downtown Development Authority is to keep the downtown area strong and vibrant. In celebration of the city and the people in it, the DDA recently completed the first phase of a permanent public art installation consisting of steel silhouettes that represent what DDA Director Joan Horton calls “the very best of Clawson – its people.” Several two-dimensional steel figures represent a woman and her dog, a man holding a child, a woman with a shopping bag and a youngster with a backpack. The DDA is currently looking for sponsors for the next phase of the installation. Contact Joan Horton at (248) 435-5299 or for sponsorship information.
