Neighborhood on the Edge: Who gets to choose what happens to the Hubbard Richard Neighborhood?

Through Dec. 22
Mexicantown Center 4114 W. Vernor, Detroit Greater Detroit Area

Detroit’s Hubbard Richard neighborhood is due for even more changes soon. A quarter-century ago, “Matty” Moroun leveled dozens of houses in the community for his Ambassador Bridge. Now, with Ford Motor Co.’s purchase of the nearby former Michigan Central Station, the neighborhood will likely experience an influx of real estate speculators — which could mean many longtime members of the community get pushed out.

A new multimedia art exhibition offers a portrait of the community as it is now. Titled Neighborhood on the Edge: Who gets to choose what happens to the Hubbard Richard Neighborhood?, the show is a collaboration between activist and Matrix Theatre Company founder Shaun Nethercott and photographer Carlos Dueweke-Perez, featuring 10 life-sized photos of local residents, who have shared and recorded stories about their community. The installation is part of a city-wide, multi-disciplinary series featuring 22 commissioned exhibitions, performances and events developed by Kresge Artist Fellows.

Opening reception from 3-6 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 8, Mexicantown Latino Cultural Center, 2835 Bagley Ave., Detroit; 313-626-6232. Show runs through Sunday, Dec. 22. (313) 842-0450

Mary Bennet is content with her books and piano and does not expect love... until a surprise guest arrives for Christmas. The play takes place 2 years after the events of Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice, but audiences don’t need to be familiar with the source material to delight in the rich characters, sibling rivalry, confused messages, physical comedy and touching romance of this holiday show, appropriate for all ages. The show is directed by Sarah Hawkins and features a stellar cast of top notch professional Michigan talent. 734-288-7753
