Discounted Admission on April 22nd, for each guest that brings a cell phone for recycling will receive a reduced admission price of $9.

Thank You to our "Champion of the Great Lakes" Sponsor, The Reid Family Foundation.

Our Recycled Fish Sculptures will be on exhibition from April 22 to July 9, 2017.
They were created in fall of 2016 with recycled items and found objects from shorelines of the Great Lakes donated by
The Alliance for the Great Lakes. 150 elementary school students from the Charles Wright Academy of Arts & Science along with Todd Patrick of Todd Patrick Design (who was the Lead Designer and builder on the project), along with volunteers from The Michigan Glass Project, Juice Box Studio, and Kensington Woods High School Students.

We educated our art students about the Great Lakes, trash pollution in our lakes (and the effects), and about ways to pick up trash in their own school and neighborhood.  Art Road was inspired by Washed Ashore, an organization that creates art to save the sea with their sculptures made with trash that has washed ashore.

Detroit, MI. - March 20, 2012 - For the seventh year in a row College Hunks Hauling Junk will be hosting an Art Supply Drive and Detroit Tigers Opening Day Tailgate on April 8th, to benefit Art Road Nonprofit. The nonprofit organization is Bringing Art Class Back to Schools that lack art in their curriculum in Detroit schools.  College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving Truck will be parked at The Detroit Opera House Parking Lot in Detroit from 10 a.m. to 1:00pm and will be accepting all art supply donations or cash donations.  Art Road and College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving encourages Tigers Fans to join us for the tailgate and bring art supplies and help us fill entire truck.  Art supplies such as glue sticks, watercolors, markers, black and white construction paper, children's scissors, and more.

"Last year we collected and delivered 6 large bins of school supplies for Art Road Nonprofit," said Dan Ryan, owner of College Hunks Hauling Junk. "We want to fill the entire truck this year!  I believe every child should have art in their life. Owning a business allows one to bring awareness to worthwhile charities, and we at College Hunks Hauling Junk are thrilled to be associated with a great group like Art Road Nonprofit."
