Bus Stop follows a bus full of strangers who find themselves stranded at a roadside dinner in Kansas City in the middle of a howling snowstorm.

This compelling exhibit, created between 1985 and 1991, powerfully shows children who faced serious challenges, including famine and war. These drawings and paintings were done from life as Lin Baum traveled to several countries including Nicaragua, Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine. As Baum says, “I hoped by now to look back and know all is well, and my series is outdated. I cannot say that. The faces change, the landscapes change, but the effects of poverty, dehumanization and war continue.” In addition to drawings from the original series, the Upstairs Gallery features new drawings of children who represent Detroit Hope.

"Unsettled: The Work of Edward Gorey"

Tuesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun., March 12, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through March 12
phone 248-645-3323

Edward Gorey’s masterful pen-and-ink drawings that illustrate his captivating books conjure a vaguely Edwardian world of handcars, boater hats, and Dickensian children. With titles such as The Hapless Child, The Loathsome Couple, and The Fatal Lozenge, Gorey’s protagonists often meet an untimely demise. Despite the subject matter, his work transcends the mere macabre, offering instead a dark humor that has found contemporary resonance with cultural phenomena from Goth and steampunk to Lemony Snicket and Tim Burton. Although Gorey’s métier was the illustrated novel, his talent and reach extended to other creative realms. Museum Admission: ArtMembers (Join Now!) FREE, Children 12 & Under FREE, General $10, Seniors (65 and over) $8, Students with ID $6.

Special guests include Nicholas Hammond (Spider-Man, 1977-1979), WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jake “the Snake” Roberts, former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter, and more. $15 (two day pass)
