Wayfinding Skatepark Opening

Wed., Aug. 16

A unique and temporary skate park, Wayfinding opens to the public this week with all the fanfare it deserves. After all, it was designed by the most influential skateboarder of all time, Tony Hawk. Library Street Collective, Bedrock, Quicken Loans, and Cranbrook also had a hand in bringing it to fruition, as did Modern Skate and Surf’s George Leichtweis. The space, which is adorned with brightly colored and highly stylized street signs by Ryan McGinness, will feature public performances and art activations until in closes in January.

Wayfinding Skatepark Opening


Wed., Aug. 16, 8 p.m.

Alabama native Katie Crutchfield probably didn't know that her latest release Out in the Storm as Waxahatchee would have shaken the indie world the way that it has. But with her aching and autobiographical lyrics paired with an alt-’90s rawness, Crutchfield found a tender and bruised demographic and bares all on her most potent record yet. But it’s not just we angst-y saps who took notice — Crutchfield and Co. have toured with indie royalty Kurt Vile, Sleater-Kinney, Tegan and Sara, and most recently the New Pornographers. Doors open at 8 p.m.; 4114 Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-436-1793;; Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 day of show. $13-$15

Carole Harris is a fiber artist, working primarily in the art of quilt medium. Her work has extended the boundaries of traditional quilting. Her process is improvisational. She lets the fabric and color lead her on a rhythmic journey, using combinations of commercially printed cottons, silks, linen, hand dyed, hand painted, vintage fabrics and paper thrown in. These materials are cut up, overlaid, hand stitched, burned, painted, repositioned, until she knows that she has arrived at her destination of a densely layered composition. Her work is included in many private and institutional collections and has been exhibited extensively worldwide. free
