Detroit rapper Big Sean, aka Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, will perform Tuesday morning at a party at the Michigan Central Station to celebrate Ford Motor Co.'s purchase of the property.
The performance is part of a free celebration that starts at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Roosevelt Park, just north of the landmark. Brian McCollom of Detroit Free Press reports.
The public will be admitted to Ford’s party on a first-come basis and people are encouraged to register in advance. Admission begins at 10 a.m.
Attendees will include Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford, CEO Jim Hackett, company employees, government officials and community members.
On Tuesday evening, the automaker and two Corktown residents -- Brian and Stacy Malloy -- will host a community conversation in a parking lot at Bagley and Trumbull at 6 p.m. It's billed as a chance to share "insights, highlights, concerns, etc." about Ford’s plans for the neighborhood.
Ford also hosts free self-guided Grand Hall tours at the end of this week. Hours are 1-6 p.m. this Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. the next two days.
Ian Thibodeau of The Detroit News snags advance details:
Ford and the Detroit Historical Society will have a curated exhibit inside the 18-story, 500,000-square-foot building recently purchased by the automaker. Artifacts will provide glimpses of the depot's history. Visitors will get a first look at a documentary on the train station.
