Representatives from the $1.4 billion, Plymouth, Mich.-based Community Financial Credit Union unveil an installation featuring works by Detroit artist Tony Roko (in background, right of center) at CFCU’s home office in Plymouth. CFCU recently partnered with Roko and his Art Foundation for the launch of phase two of the Plymouth ArtWalk program. As the official sponsor, CFCU donated $50,000 in support of the program, which will beautify unused spaces in downtown Plymouth with 10 interactive art installations by Roko. So far, two installations have opened in CFCU’s home office, and the remaining eight, planned for completion by April, will be located in the downtown Plymouth corridor’s alleyways. The project will feature interactive opportunities for the community to engage with the artwork, including a QR code that directs to information about the artwork, Roko’s background, a podcast-style audio tour and more.
