"The Beach Detroit" is an interactive art installation by New York art house, Snarkitecture and the latest to wash up on the shore of Detroit's playful art scene thanks to Library Street Collective. "The Beach" will make a splash at 1001 Woodward Ave., in downtown Detroit, in a space that recently housed the cute as heck FriendsWithYou skating installation, Rainbow City Roller Rink.
While it may not resemble a literal beach, as it is devoid of sand, water, and sun, there are familiar visual elements that harken back to summertime and taking a dive requires a bit of imagination.
"The Beach" will open to the public on Friday, March 1 and will remain open through Sunday, April 14. It is free and billed as being a family-friendly experience. Visitors are invited to dive in on Wednesday-Friday, noon-8 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., and Sunday, noon-6 p.m. For more information, visit the beachdetroit.com
