Awarding Equity: A Conversation with James Beard Foundation

Thu., Nov. 15, 6 p.m.

For devoted American foodies, sous chefs, line cooks, and executive chefs, the James Beard Award is the top of the mountain — the crème de la crème. For 28 years, the New York-based nonprofit James Beard Foundation has provided scholarships to culinary students and championed excellence in kitchens and restaurant hospitality services throughout the country. To discuss the foundation’s philosophy and its dedication to diversifying the award process, chief strategy officer of the James Beard Foundation Mitchell Davis will be joined by writer and cook Tunde Wey, FoodLab Detroit’s Devita Davison, and Freep food critic Mark Kurlyandchik. free

Not all heroes wear capes — but a lot of them do, and a lot of them fancy themselves residents of the Marvel Universe.

Watch the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange as they fight to recover the Wand of Watoomb from bad boy Loki’s hands. $40+

Deliberate Misunderstandings: Embroidered Found Photographs

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.
