April 14, 2013

Art X Detroit: Kresge Arts Experience drew thousands of southeast Michigan residents to Midtown Detroit where they celebrated visual, performing and literary arts April 10-14.  (Using a mobile device? This version is formatted for a smaller screen.)

The free, five-day event is a biennial festival of arts and culture in Detroit and the creativity and craft of Kresge’s Eminent Artists and Artist Fellows.

The Eminent Artist and Artist Fellowship programs are part of Kresge’s Detroit Program. The Detroit Program uses a comprehensive framework to invest in efforts to foster long-term economic opportunity that advances social equity, promotes cultural expression, and re-establishes Kresge’s hometown as the center of a vibrant region.

A special visual arts exhibition runs through April 28 at MOCAD, Museum of Contemporary Arts Detroit.
