Artist Chazz Miller will begin painting a mural at 10 a.m. Monday on the fence line of the island park's closed zoo. The mural will feature plants and animals native to Michigan.
Life Choices provides support for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Neighborhood Service Organization staff will help members of the program during the mural project.
Access Arts Detroit, North Oakland Vocational Association and the city of Detroit's recreation department are collaborating with the project.
The Neighborhood Service Organization is a private, nonprofit human services agency that provides programs for the homeless, people with developmental disabilities, families struggling through addiction and mental illness, and young people.
