Metro Times 2013 Fall Arts Issue

Art in Detroit



There is an arab proverb that goes something like this: “If you have only two pennies, spend the first on bread and the other on hyacinths for your soul.” In other words, life without art is nearly akin to starving.

In this year’s Fall Arts issue, we eschew the prototypical paint on canvas to explore mediums of sound and tactility. From metal art installations to the richness of operatic theater, the city of Detroit is a cultural oasis ready to nourish. Drink it up.
