Leonard Woodcock Honorary Wall

Walter P. Reuther Library, Wayne State University, 2019

Exhibition planning, design, fabrication and installation

Leonard Woodcock started his career as a machinist in Detroit. Known for his master negotiating skills, he became the UAW President and eventually, the U.S. Ambassador to China under President Carter. Throughout his career, Woodcock remained active in the Civil Rights Movement, Detroit affairs, and Wayne State University.

Flutter & Wow designed this wall in Woodcock’s honor for the Wayne State University Walter P. Reuther Library, where he was also very active. Bold graphics and a combination of vinyl and pvc prints, along with wood framing make the wall stand out and to highlight Woodcock’s character and achievements.
