A partnership with First United Methodist Church of Birmingham, Art & Soul helps restore dignity among homeless

persons in Detroit by inspiring pride and purpose through self-expressive art. We journey with disadvantaged adults

through the arts of pottery, painting, knitting, sewing, beading, glass, poetry and more. Our 5th Floor Studio space at

Central UMC offers a safe, cozy, art-filled oasis for participants to explore their creative side, make friends, learn new

crafts and give structure and an alternative to life on the streets. Art & Soul is staffed by volunteers who assist


Cosmic Light Shapes

COSMIC LIGHT SHAPES are an indie psych pop rock trio from Detroit, Michigan. Their

sound ranges from 3minute 30second pop gems, to 15minute psych explorations akin to Syd Barrett, the Kinks, Brian Eno, venturing into Parliament/Funkadelic, Sun Ra & MC5 territory. Cosmic Light Shapes has been playing on the music scene for a number of years and will have a full length record out in the winter of 2015. Cosmic Light Shapes present a culmination of the sounds and spectrum that the band has been cultivating through their live shows, and display a sound & vision not unlike traveling through space -- encountering alternate multiverses and altered states of reality along the way for all participants
