Every year for the past 25 years the parks department combines two hundred tons of topsoil and twenty thousand gallons of water and call it mud day.

Mission Statement:
To document the city in an attempt to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of Detroit, her buildings, and her people.

Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.
