Detroit Institute of Art Offrendas!!!

In recognition of Mexican culture, the DIA has a really great exhibit of offrendas created by local artists! I checked it out last year and loved it! My son’s girlfriend is a Hispanic artist and was thrilled, impressed with and positively impacted by the exhibit!

Murals in EASTERN MARKET!!!! An amazing experience to watch the muralists painting murals all over Eastern Market! I hope you can take this annual opportunity to grab some fresh veggies as you peruse the murals from past festivals and watch the new ones happening live in front of you! KIDS LOVE THIS!!!!!! Take a wagon to haul the younger kids!

At the Sisson Gallery in Dearborn….

Probably most interesting for adult music fans! I have not seen it yet, but I suggest maybe going for a “date night” before taking the kids!
