Avenue Q

Starts Sept. 21. Mondays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 7

Boasting one of the most unique warnings in Broadway history, Avenue Q wants you to know that it is full of puppet sex — full-on puppet sex. The debaucherous “triple crown” (that’s best musical, best book, and best score) Tony Award-winning musical spins PBS into XXX territory. The show follows puppet Princeton, a broke college graduate and his search for purpose. Each of Avenue Q’s 11 puppet characters is animated and voiced by actors in full view of the audience, making for a four-dimensional theatrical experience. Avenue Q is not just raunchy — it’s delightfully inappropriate. Want proof? Catch musical numbers “If You Were Gay,” “The Internet Is for Porn,” and “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.” $17-$28

Picnic

Sat., Sept. 22, 6-8 p.m.

Simone DeSousa EDITION will host PICNIC, a site-specific installation by Campo Studio (Fernando Bales & Elise DeChard). The project aims to blur the lines between object, architecture, and the field in between. The intervention will comprise a series of mobile furniture armatures, each with a standalone presence and use, that together assemble into a cohesive architectural space spanning the gallery and courtyard. Investigating playful materiality and rich tactility, the structures will activate the sensorial boundary between interior and public space. The project will be up through the second week of October.

Grant Wood: American Gothic and Other Fables

Thu., Sept. 27, 6-9 p.m.
phone 313.831.1250

Grant Wood’s American Gothic—the double portrait of a pitchfork-wielding farmer and a woman commonly presumed to be his wife—is perhaps the most recognizable painting in 20th century American art, an indelible icon of Americana, and certainly Wood’s most famous artwork. But Wood’s career consists of far more than one single painting. He was a complex, sophisticated artist whose image as a farmer-painter was as mythical as the fables he depicted in his art. Wood sought pictorially to fashion a world of harmony and prosperity that would answer America’s need for reassurance at a time of economic and social upheaval occasioned Dinner and Lecture - Non-Member: $65.00, Lecture Only - Non-Member: $20.00
