A sad loss earlier this year, Mike Kelley was an artist who influenced a generation and helped bring attention to Los Angeles as a vital art capital. His Mobile Homestead’s project – a recreation of his childhood home mounted on a trailer – was only part completed at the time of his death. The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit recently received funding that will ensure the completion of the piece as envisioned and will present it in 2013.
