America's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Thu., Nov. 22, 8:45 a.m.

Before you stuff yourself with turkey and get into an argument with your Trump-voting family (Aunt Becky, we see you!) America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade returns for its 92nd year to deliver pure, unadulterated joy. Six new floats will make their debut alongside crowd favorites, all leading up to an appearance by the man, the myth, the jolly legend — Santa friggin’ Clause. CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz will serve as the parade’s grand marshal and will be joined by Disney Channel star Sofia Wylie, former Detroit Tiger Jack Morris, Boston Marathon winner Desiree Linden, and Broadway’s Aladdin star Korie Lee Blossey. Members of Aretha Franklin’s family will also join the parade with a performance from Cass Tech High School Marching Band. free

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.

Paul Rand was a giant of American design, whose influential career spanned the second half of the twentieth century. His visionary and pithy conceptions of corporate and non-profit brand identities—though often graphically minimal—embody the artist’s complex philosophy, interest in modernist aesthetics, and singular wit. This exhibition features posters, book covers, and packaging designs from Rand’s beginnings as a pro bono designer for arts and culture publications like Direction magazine to his decades of crafting trailblazing corporate design for companies such as IBM.

The story of Japanese archaeologist Ryoichi and evidence of his worldwide excavations are explored by Patrick Nagatani in this series of photographs. Nagatani presents a narrative of Ryoichi’s archeological work, supported by images of excavation sites, unearthed artifacts, and Ryoichi’s own journal pages. According to the photographs, Ryoichi discovered evidence of an automobile culture buried at sites across several continents: Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon, and a necropolis in China. This provocative and playful series compels viewers to reflect on how photographs and institutions, such as museums, shape our knowledge of the past and present. Free
