Eye on the D: Seeing Detroit with New Eyes
This show focuses on the rich multi-textured character of the city of Detroit in the midst of radical change. Whether it’s the current physical landscape, evolving neighborhoods or political makeup, show us evidence of a re-imagined terrain. What is the next chapter in the story of this quintessential American city, or what whispers not to be forgotten?
Detroit’s historic artistic achievements are monumental – the architecture of Albert Kahn and Eliel Saarinen, the auto industry’s design revolution, the public murals of Diego Rivera and the intensely personal work of Frida Kahlo, the music of Motown and Hip Hop. Recent creative momentum has given voice to a new vision of the city in this post-Fordian post-modern era and gained national and international attention. How do you see the city of the future, the city in your imagination, what inspires you about Detroit?
This exhibition was juried by Detroit Artists Bethany Shorb & Cynthia Greig.
Please join us as we explore detroit through the eyes of 18 artists. The closing reception includes a live dance
performance by Christina Sears-Etter at 7pm.
