PBS NEWSHOUR

Making music from Detroit's vacant homes

  • Aired: 06/24/2014
  • 05:52
  • Rating: NR
Reclaim Detroit is a nonprofit organization that dismantles vacant buildings to re-use their materials. That’s music to the ears of Michigan luthier Gary Zimnicki, who is using reclaimed floorboards and ceilings to craft ukuleles and mandolins. Filmmaker Roy Feldman from WTVS Detroit Public Television takes us inside Zimnicki’s studio. For more Art Beat: newshour.pbs.org/art
