Ricky Powell’s Slideshow 

When: Thu., May 21, 6 p.m. 2015
Phone: 313-744-6505
Price: Free
In 1986, Powell ditched his job as a lemon ice vendor in New York City to join the Beastie Boys on the road as a photog and unofficial “fourth Beastie Boy.” Since then he’s become known for his intimate portraits of some of NYC’s brightest stars, including Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cindy Crawford, and more. For one night only, Powell brings his world famous slideshow to Detroit, and will be on hand to tell the stories behind 30 years of photos. Old school New York hip-hop sounds provided by K-Fresh.
