The community gathered for the ribbon cutting ceremony unveiling the Glidden Parker Mural and CP Federal City Square. The major art installation and public gathering spot was the result of four years of work, planning and fundraising.
That space – the CP Federal City Square – officially opened Friday, May 5, at a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The 9-foot-by-28-foot mural was commissioned in 1969 for $35,000 and became the centerpiece at the former Consumers Energy headquarters, 212 W. Michigan Ave., which is now the site of Horace Blackman Park and the new CP Federal City Square.
