Abstraction, Color, and Politics in the Early 1970s

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 29, 2019
phone 734-764-0395

Can abstract art be about politics? In the early 1970s, that question was hotly debated as artists, critics, and the public grappled with the relationship between art, politics, race, and feminism. Many of those debates centered on bringing to light the roles that gender and race played in how “great modern art” was defined and assessed, and on employing art to advance civil rights. Within this discourse, abstraction had an especially fraught role. The exhibition presents large-scale work by four leading American artists who chose abstraction as a means of expression within the intense political climate of the early 1970s. Free

Avenue Q

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
