Spent some time in a city I used to call home- Philly. It was better than ever! More later.
Tonight was the opening reception for the 2013 Scholarship Awards and Exhibition at Detroit Artists Market. The work of ten finalists was showcased at the gallery, all of whom are attending Wayne State. The show was well-attended by faculty, alumni and artists.
DAM was buzzing with critiques and conversation, as attendants strolled around listening to music from an electronic symphony, slowly making their way in a serpentine loop, while discussing the art hanging on the walls.
Founded in 1932, DAM is the oldest continuously running non-profit gallery in the Midwest. The space features work by a variety of local artists and hosts an evolving roster of exhibitions and programming. The art space promotes both established and emerging artists and is an indispensable resource for anyone who appreciates art.
The exhibition will be on display until April 6.
