Black Bottom Street View: Opening Reception

Sat., Jan. 26, 2 p.m.

Black Bottom, the epicenter of Detroit’s black community before the neighborhood was demolished in the early 1960s, will be remembered on Saturday with an exhibition at the Detroit Public Library’s Main Branch. “Black Bottom Street View” will showcase some of the thousands of photos from the Burton Historical Collection that together portray a vivid picture of life in the prime of the neighborhood. The photos were taken between 1949 and 1950 by Detroit’s “Corporation Council” to assess the value of the structures as part of the legal process of eminent domain. Digitally stitched together, the photos capture roughly one-fifth of the original neighborhood. Free

Anthony R. Brass Art Exhibition

Sun., Jan. 27, 11 a.m. and Sun., March 17, 11 a.m.
phone 248-546-2504
jeffmilo@ferndalepubliclibrary.org

Anthony R. Brass’ art often seems to grow beyond a frame. The works he’ll have on display this winter at the Ferndale Area District Library (starting January 27), will ostensibly be “framed,” but each illustration suggests an expansiveness, a natural unfurling akin to the way a tree root may upend concrete as it spreads, or how a river gently carves rock, or the way our own feet or hands can leave indentations upon the soil as we travel. free

Paul Rand: The Designer's Task

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 10
phone 734-764-0395
matisend@umich.edu
,

Paul Rand was a giant of American design, whose influential career spanned the second half of the twentieth century. His visionary and pithy conceptions of corporate and non-profit brand identities—though often graphically minimal—embody the artist’s complex philosophy, interest in modernist aesthetics, and singular wit. This exhibition features posters, book covers, and packaging designs from Rand’s beginnings as a pro bono designer for arts and culture publications like Direction magazine to his decades of crafting trailblazing corporate design for companies such as IBM.

Proof: The Ryoichi Excavations

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 3
phone 734-764-0395
,

The story of Japanese archaeologist Ryoichi and evidence of his worldwide excavations are explored by Patrick Nagatani in this series of photographs. Nagatani presents a narrative of Ryoichi’s archeological work, supported by images of excavation sites, unearthed artifacts, and Ryoichi’s own journal pages. According to the photographs, Ryoichi discovered evidence of an automobile culture buried at sites across several continents: Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon, and a necropolis in China. This provocative and playful series compels viewers to reflect on how photographs and institutions, such as museums, shape our knowledge of the past and present. Free
