Making Home: Contemporary Works

Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Continues through June 6

The DIA debuts its latest exhibition, Making Home: Contemporary Works, just in time for the holidays. The collection explores interpretations of domestic space, permanency, and proposes questions of what it means to what it means to feel at “home.” Nearly 50 works in a variety of mediums ranging from prints, drawings, photographs, and contemporary art make up Making Home. Celebrated Detroit-based artists Bill Rauhauser and Charles McGee explore urbanization while photographer Carrie Mae Williams dives into gender and domesticity with The Kitchen Table Series. free

An Equal Opportunity Lie

Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 27

sloan@sloanlongway.org

In 1967, Flint Mayor Floyd McCree, resigned his appointed position, stating, “I refuse to live an equal opportunity lie.” He did so in protest of the city commission’s defeat of an open housing ordinance. For despite his status as the first African American mayor of a large American city, McCree inhabited what had become one of the most racially segregated cities in America. Using objects and images from Sloan Museum’s collection, this exhibition examines the housing segregation that characterized Flint’s residential development, as well as efforts to wrest the city free from discriminatory housing practices. $9 Adults, $8 Seniors 60+, $6 Youth ages 2-11

Vance Joy

Tue., May 22, 7:30 p.m.

Mending a broken heart? Falling in love? There’s a soundtrack for all of that, thanks to little cutie extraordinaire and crooner from Down Under, Vance Joy, known best for his endearing brand of indie, chart-topping sap. Proficient in foot-stomping, sing-along songs, it was Joy’s breakout hit “Riptide” that topped global charts in 2013 and became the longest-charting song in Australian music sales history with 120 consecutive weeks. His latest output, 2018’s Nation of Two fuses his signature sentimentality with less-than-rose-tinted romanticism — suggesting that joy is fleeting, but Vance Joy is forever. $25+

Gratitude and Addiction Recovery

Tue., May 22, 7:30-9 p.m.
phone 734-485-8725
info@dawnfarm.org

Presented by Dr. Amy R. Krentzman, MSW, PhD. “Gratitude” is a frequent topic in recovery circles, a recurrent theme in recovery program literature, and a central component of addiction recovery for many recovering people. This presentation will provide definitions of gratitude proposed by social scientists, present scientific findings about the benefits of gratitude, cover theories for the ways in which gratitude “works” (in general and in recovery), and ponder whether gratitude has a “downside.” Together we will practice at least two gratitude exercises. Part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. Free, open to all. free
