    The Fisher Halfpipe is concept art installment curated by Everard Findlay, the project delves into the ideal of how sports such as skateboarding and bmx can transcend social barriers such as race, class or culture. The Halfpipe currently sits in the main arcade of the Fisher Building Lobby. The Fisher Halfpipe opened for public viewing on Monday night. Professional and semi-professional skateboarders, inline-skaters and BMX bikers will be performing on the Halfpipe April 3rd through the 6th. It's open to the public 6pm to 9pm each evening. The event includes live music and stuff to eat. The 26-foot, 16-foot wide halfpipe was built by Ramped Construction. The artwork on the Halfpipe was painted by local artists Hillary Butterworth, Miranda Wedge, and Brian Oscar; their instagrams show the progress as they painted the halfpipe start to finish. The ramp is part of an ongoing project called, “The Fisher Beacon Project.” The campaign aims at drawing-in visitors to the historic building through performance art and interesting exhibitions.

    Pedal to porch is a neighborhood bike ride that includes stops along the route where residents of the neighborhood use their front porch as a space to tell a story. Porch stories sometimes are entertaining, educational, socially or politically charged, and sometimes the porch stories are history lessons about the neighborhoods themselves. Cornetta Lane, the founder of Pedal to Porch, focuses on civic engagement. “Pedal to Porch helps neighbors engage in conversations that they may not have otherwise.” She goes on to say, “Folks don’t know their neighbors anymore; their stories. The best way to bring neighbors together is to host a bike ride that allows neighbors to be introduced to each other.” Pedal to Porch recently received a Knight City Challenge grant which Cornetta plans to use to expand her project beyond this season’s 3-neighborhood route, perhaps into other cities including Washington D.C. and the Boston area. Pedal to Porch has introduced a docu-series, “Pedaler.” It’s a story about the neighborhoods of Detroit from the voices of its residents.  Watch the preview:
