Sphere sculpture proposed downtown
An 11-foot-tall sculpture that includes a six-foot bronze sphere may soon sit in front of Huntington Place.
What's happening: The authority that runs the downtown convention center — called TCF Center until Huntington bought TCF Bank — is proposing a new sculpture by the car drop-off area at Jefferson Avenue and Washington Boulevard.
- It requires City Council's approval before it can be installed.
- Called the "Floating Citadel," Hocking says in an artist's statement that it's inspired by "everything from ancient Native shorelines and French voyagers" to Detroit's reputation for creativity.

Editor's note: This story has been corrected to state the six-foot-tall bronze sphere is part of an 11-foot-tall sculpture, not a standalone sphere.
