Bikes, Beers, And Balusters

Sat., Sept. 22, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

Over the course of a relaxing bike ride through Detroit, we will explore the architectural ornamentation of Corrado Parducci, the man who helped make Detroit beautiful. Parducci Society President Jennifer Baross and Detroit bike enthusiast Tom Page will guide the tour with guests and share details, secrets, and stories about Parducci’s and other craftsmen’s contributions to Detroit’s built environment. Afterward, we will unwind at the Beaubien House, one of Detroit’s oldest homes, with optional lunch, beers and informal conversation on ornamentation and craftsmanship in Detroit.

Picnic

Sat., Sept. 22, 6-8 p.m.

Simone DeSousa EDITION will host PICNIC, a site-specific installation by Campo Studio (Fernando Bales & Elise DeChard). The project aims to blur the lines between object, architecture, and the field in between. The intervention will comprise a series of mobile furniture armatures, each with a standalone presence and use, that together assemble into a cohesive architectural space spanning the gallery and courtyard. Investigating playful materiality and rich tactility, the structures will activate the sensorial boundary between interior and public space. The project will be up through the second week of October.

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
