  • I have seen this statue most of my life. Great place for out of town guest to visit. Sometimes they will make a big sports jersey for it if one of the Detroit teams gets into the playoffs.  more »
  • So beautifully doe, surrounded by a beautiful building. Great to walk by in our travels. I loved the Greek feel to this statue and it's representation of Industry in Detroit.  more »

  • A photogenic structure in downtown Detroit, close to lots of attractions. The sculptor, Marshall Fredericks, waived his fees because he believed it was his civic responsibility to create this.

  • One of Detroit's iconic statute. A must see.
  • Pretty cool tribute to the city. Must see.
  • Amazing place - symbol of Detroit
  • I love Detroit! I grew up in the Suburbs but times going to Hart plaza, we'd always have to stop by to see the Spirit of Detroit. Going to do anything whether it be the Fox Theater or the spinning restaurant on the very top of the Renaissance center aka GM building. We love the Spirit!
