The Art of Containment — Vessels from the Sidney Swidler Collection

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through March 31, 2018

Sidney Swidler’s work as a modern architect helped train his eye to pick up the essential elements of form, texture, glaze selection, craftsmanship, and artistic intent, which he used to collect nearly 1,000 piece of contemporary ceramic art. In 2010, he donated around 800 of those pieces to California’s Crocker Art Museum. Seven years later, he gave 100 pieces to the FIA, a gift that resulted in this exhibit. Hours of the museum are: Monday-Friday: 12 p.m.-5 p.m., Saturday: 10 a.m.- 5 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m.-5 p.m.

2017 Youth Day | Detroit Design Festival

Sat., Sept. 30, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

In 2010, the Detroit Creative Corridor Center founded the Detroit Design festival as a way of highlighting the Motor City’s legacy of art and design. It worked — in 2015, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization bestowed Detroit with a special “City of Design” designation, making it the only North American city to earn the honors. Each September, DC3 continues to highlight Detroit design with a series of happenings around the city. It turns out “design” encompasses a lot — from the industrial designers who work in tandem with Detroit’s storied automotive industry to the graphic designers coming out of the College for Creative Studies to the city’s community of tinkerers and makers. Anything involved with visual design is fair game. Sept. 28-30; see website for full schedule and participating venues; detroitdesignfestival.com; free and open to the public. Free
