To celebrate, a number of design-related events have united under the banner of the Detroit Month of Design. Highlights include Eastern Market After Dark (Sept. 20), Light Up Livernois (Sept. 29), "Shape: Defining Furniture In Michigan's Design Legacy" at Shinola (Sept. 7), Focus: On Detroit Photography Festival in Detroit's Cool Cities Park (Sept. 15). and the Junior League of Detroit's Designer Showhouse at the historic Charles T. Fisher Mansion (Sept. 15-Oct. 7).
