Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 8

You don’t often hear about the LGBTQ+ civil rights fight in the context of Arab peoples, so it’s especially interesting to see the museum offer this show. At the center of it all is artist Nabil Mousa, an artist born in Syria but raised in a conservative Christian household in the United States. His willingness to use art as a way to comment on the religious and political has met with some controversy, such as a work of his that was banned from a public building at Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize two years ago. But the new show of his art is filled with the color orange, which Mousa uses to symbolize fear. ("Orange alert," anyone?) Runs through April 8, 2018.

The Art of Containment — Vessels from the Sidney Swidler Collection

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through March 31

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.

Joyce Brienza Art Exhibit - Floating Points

Through April 16, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
phone 734 936 3326

Joyce Brienza is a Detroit artist who has shown work nationally and internationally. The Paintings and Drawings in this exhibition express her decades long interest in the “places between” the conscious and unconscious, representation and abstraction, male and female, high art and low. The pictures are combinations of disparate elements evoking the surprise that accompanies a dream state and that create a poetical wave that will float the viewer if only they submit. Works consist of multiple - fragmented parts that are connected but ultimately separate. As with the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-sabi, the very imperfectly hand drawn patterns and free
