Year of Detroit weather displayed on Cobo Center marquee

April 8, 2018

DETROIT (AP) — A video documenting a year of weather in Detroit will be displayed throughout April on a convention center marquee in downtown Detroit.

The Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority and Cobo Art say “Detroit Weather: 365 Days” is part of a yearlong series that will be presented on the big screen outside Cobo Center.

The video by artist Susan Goethel Campbell features images captured by a web cam placed on a Detroit building.

One still image was archived from the web cam every minute over an entire year. The images then were compressed into a movie which spans more than three hours.

A John S. and James L. Knight Foundation grant funds “The Big Screen: Cobo Center Marquee Series,” which will display work by a different artist each month.
