Make time for Detroit Art Week, coming July 20 – 22. Contemporary art, special events and programs, plus a public celebration of work by fiber artist Carole Harris and abstract expressionist painter Allie McGhee are part of the inaugural edition of DAW.
Detroit Art Week is an annual self-guided tour and celebration of contemporary art and culture in Detroit. For three days, we invite visitors to attend gallery and museum tours, open studios, intimate studio and site visits, artist talks, and various special programs, alongside the parties, music, nightlife, and culinary experiences that make summers in Detroit so exceptionally beautiful.
Detroit Art Week will kick-off on Friday, July 20, 2018 at 4:30 pm with an artist talk and exhibition of work by veteran artists Carole Harris and Allie McGhee at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Harris, a fiber artist, redefines and subverts the basic concepts of quilting, while McGhee, an abstract expressionist painter, explores ideas about harmony in the universe.
Detroit Art Week programs will encapsulate the unique diversity of contemporary art and culture in Detroit. The work of nearly 100 artists will be on view. Happenings will take place at MoCAD, Flowers of Vietnam (named one of the best restaurants in America by GQ), Red Bull House of Art, Stanley Kresge Estate, What Pipeline, and at the studios of Scott Reeder and James Benjamin Franklin.
