Hell Yes!

Sat., Nov. 17, 6 p.m.

It’s been one year since Paulina Petkoski and Samantha Bankle Schefman (both of whom snagged a spot on Metro Times’ People Issue this past year) opened the doors to Playground Detroit, going all in on the future of local artists. Part independent gallery, part talent incubator, Playground Detroit is celebrating a blowout 2018 full of diverse programming (not to mention cash in the pockets of working artists). Playground’s annual group exhibition Hell Yes! will focus on positivity and manifestation. The showing will feature a selection of artists included in solo and group exhibitions throughout the year, in addition to some 2019 up-and-comers. free

Joe Policastro Trio

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.
