We know the free drinks and good music at these gallery openings can lead to long lines and a packed venue, but the globally recognized “Fight Club of the art scene” is worth the wait. Six artists split into two teams compete in a Marvel comic book-inspired live painting competition. Armed with only acrylic paint or black markers, the teams have 90 minutes to fill a blank canvas up to 25-feet tall. The final products are a unique collaboration of Detroit’s artistic styles and a look into the methodical chaos of creating within a time limit. free

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Fri., June 23, 9:30-11:30 p.m.
phone 810-359-5108
info@lexingtonvillagetheatre.com
,

Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of "internationally ignored song stylist" Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock 'n' roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just "an angry inch." This outrageous and unexpectedly hilarious story is dazzlingly performed by Hedwig (née Hansel) in the form of a rock gig/stand-up comedy routine backed by the hard-rocking band "The Angry Inch." It's a rocking ride, funny, touching and ultimately inspiring to anyone who has felt life gave them an inch when they deserved a mile. $8 to $22

Sat., June 24, 10 a.m.

Were the events of July 23 to August 1, 1967 a riot, rebellion, insurrection, or revolution? What underlying problems contributed to that fateful week? How have those events shaped the city over the last 50 years? The Detroit Historical Society has spent two years sourcing diverse communities, scholars, and historical archives to answer these questions and provide a more encompassing look at the forces at work in Detroit. A complete schedule for opening weekend events, including curator lectures, family-friendly activities, group discussions, and a showcase of oral histories is available online. free entry

Carole Harris is a fiber artist, working primarily in the art of quilt medium. Her work has extended the boundaries of traditional quilting. Her process is improvisational. She lets the fabric and color lead her on a rhythmic journey, using combinations of commercially printed cottons, silks, linen, hand dyed, hand painted, vintage fabrics and paper thrown in. These materials are cut up, overlaid, hand stitched, burned, painted, repositioned, until she knows that she has arrived at her destination of a densely layered composition. Her work is included in many private and institutional collections and has been exhibited extensively worldwide. free

Throughout history, jade has had profound cultural implications in different regions of the world. In ancient Mesoamerican cultures, jade was highly prized and often connected to rulers and spirituality. A wide variety of items, including tools, figurines, and jewelry reflected the strong cosmological and symbolic associations the culture had with this luminous, hard stone. Jade has also been an important artistic material in China for over 6,000 years. During this time, it evolved from serving ritual functions to personal usage. $0 – $7
