DETROIT -- A West Coast magazine plans to feature four once-derelict Detroit homes that have been turned into works of art.
The Detroit Free Press reports that San Francisco's Juxtapoz raised $180,000 to support six artists who have been transforming the structures on Moran Street since the fall.
The magazine expects to continue sending artists to Detroit "to promote creativity and participation in the re-imagining of America's urban neighborhoods."
A 2010 survey has determined that Detroit is home to more than 30,000 vacant and abandoned houses.
Local artist Tyree Guyton has used empty houses for his Heidelberg Project which features polka-dot art and collections of stuffed animals, shoes and old appliances.
Some crumbling houses also have been painted orange during the city's social art movement.
