American Landscape

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.

Celebrated Detroit-based artists Bill Rauhauser and Charles McGee explore urbanization while photographer Carrie Mae Williams dives into gender and domesticity with The Kitchen Table Series. free

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.

The Michigan Five highlights the most outstanding and creative dance talent from colleges and universities throughout the state. How? Every year, the most celebrated choreographers in the world work with students at the college level to teach them new and exciting dance. So, we at The Berman wondered...why not show this world class choreography at The Berman and give these young artists a chance to perform in a professional setting. We then reached out to our event coordinator, Gregg Patterson and asked him...what would happen if...What came from it? 5 outstanding colleges & universities dance programs $27-$48
