Celebrated Detroit writer, professor, and Kresge Foundation Eminent Artist Award recipient Bill Harris takes on the Civil War in his latest collection of short stories.

Written in three parts, I Got to Keep Moving is an exploration of preservation and memory, and aims to serve as source material for future conversations. To celebrate the launch, Harris will read from his latest collection and will be accompanied by musician and storyteller Rev. Robert Jones, Sr. free

Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Through Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.
