Detroit Tribute in Light

September 4, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


DTE’s Beacon Park, in partnership with the Downtown Detroit Partnership, Mindfield, TLS Productions, Inc. and the curatorial committee of Njia Kai from NKSK Events + Production, the Detroit Branch NAACP, and Jamon Jordan from the Detroit Black Scroll Network is proud to showcase “Detroit Tribute In Light”. This community-centric video and light event honors the courage Detroiters have shown and acknowledges the losses we have suffered in facing the two pandemics of COVID-19 and racial injustice. The face of the Grand Army of the Republic Building directly across the street from Beacon Park, will be covered completely with a moving video light show. The video will loop throughout each night of the event from just after sunset to Midnight. It is comprised of locally gathered images and video as well as massive scale custom-designed graphics and animations.

In order to safely accommodate visitors, we will offer multiple showings each evening. Online registration is required and attendance is limited. Register here

This event is sponsored by DTE Energy Beacon Park Detroit Foundation and programmed by the Downtown Detroit Partnership.
