Vincent Murray, 2015. Gouache and collaged satellite view of Bagley Housing.

"One of the biggest mentors in my life has been my boss at Bagley Housing, Vincent Murray." —Amelia

In the mid 1990’s, Dr. Murray wrested control of Bagley Housing Association from the Detroit International Bridge Company and organized it into a Community Development Corporation. Under his leadership, the organization received grants to create new, affordable houses so people could relocate from places that did not have good housing. He continues to serve the community as “volunteer groundskeeper” at Stanton Park and as a board member of Matrix Theatre Company, and still believes that “every person matters.”
