Nicole Macdonald

As a community activist and artist in Detroit focusing on city history and neighborhood empowerment, Nicole creates large-scale paintings for installation on abandoned buildings. As part of an ongoing series featuring past and present city luminaries, the “Detroit Portrait Series” consists of panels that are posted in vacant windows, framing the paintings and boarding up the buildings. The work examines local history and brings attention to neglected buildings.
