Library Street Collective (LSC) is proud to present the first Detroit exhibition for FAILE, the Brooklyn-based artist collaboration between Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. The show’s title, Size of the Fight, references Mark Twain’s quote, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog,” and relates to the city’s impressive comeback over the past few years. FAILE is inspired by the resilience, passion, and energy they see the Detroit community bringing to the city’s infrastructure and art scene. free

Fri., June 30, 6 p.m.

We’re not saying oil painting and sculpture are going the way of the dodo, but it does seem that mediums like graffiti, comics, street art, and illustration are skyrocketing in popularity. That’s what you’ll find at this exhibit curated by Los Angeles gallery Thinkspace. There will be work by both local and international artists, and the event is also a kickoff for Murals in the Market 2017. Featured artist James Bullough as well as Ouizi and Michelle Tanguay will contribute murals to the annual art installation. free

Night at the Museum

Fri., June 30, 6 p.m.

The Detroit Institute of Arts is a treasure not only to the city but to Michigan as a whole. Yet, so many never discover this enormous amalgam of art. In an effort to cultivate more awareness of the museum’s exhibits and programs, the DIA has partnered with Cool Smart, Inc. to host quarterly evening events. These happy hour-style events will feature live music — Detroit’s Queen of Blues Thornetta Davis will be performing on this evening — as well as a cash bar and curator talks. This inaugural event will feature a introduction to European modern art by curator Jill Shaw. donation-based

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
