Jimmie Thompson Art Exhibit

These are the final few days to see the Jimmie Thompson Art Exhibit at MIX Ypsilanti. Mix is pleased to present a show of work by illustrator, animator and cartoonist Jimmie Thompson. Fans of America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit will recognize his work as creator of extraordinary street pageantry for over 25 years. A Detroit native, Thompson designed and sculpted for The Parade Company, eventually becoming art director, and vice president. In addition to pencil drawings and color renderings of his parade float designs, the show will include examples of the artist’s ability to transform concepts into fun and fanciful
