Man in the City Detroit
The Man in the City Sculpture Project is comprised of 30 sculptures located on the rooftops throughout the City of Detroit. John Sauve created the Man in the City project in 2008 and has exhibited it in Benton Harbor Michigan, on New York City's Highline and most recently on Governors Island. The Man in the City Project creates a metaphor for life that transforms the skyline and encourages people to look around. In the discovery process one becomes aware of their own sense of place within the City of Detroit.

The sculpture will be installed for two years and during that time period the Sauve Art Foundation will be holding fundraisers to benefit children's art programing in the City of Detroit.

Jennifer Westwood 
Expertly straddling the line between alt-country and hard rock, she veers around Sheryl Crowe territory but brings her unique brand of moody and inspiring music and Detroit Grit. www.jenniferwestwood.com 

Prue and Schu 
Crafted their own sharp folk-rock sound that is a veritable bouncy castle of lush, up-to-the-minute indie synth-pop and blown-out radio choruses.www.vimeo.com/8629851 

Cha Cha Kitty 
A retro-rock memory of the Ford administration from Clinton-weaned indie-rock guys – like Thin Lizzy if they'd been influenced by Rolling Stones rather than vice versa. Melted into the same pot of fool's gold. Songs like "Cha Cha Kitty" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zsvQWyhm_g
