Michigan Art

I am glad that Michigan has not forgotten the art's. With so many family with unemployed or unemployed family members I know it can be a hard thing to think about. Art can take a back seat when food and housing are on their minds.

The Rust Belt to Artist Belt III conference will take place this Wednesday and Thursday, April 6 and 7 at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. Artists, creative business owners and practitioners, educators, and designers will meet in Detroit to explore how post-industrial Rust Belt cities are being shaped by creative individuals in the areas of economic and community development, and land use.

Panel discussions, workshops, and facilitated sessions will be used in order to help identify the best way to use the Rust Belt’s unique assets to encourage economic growth and efficiency.
Featured speakers/panelist for the two day conference include: Greg Garrett, Chief Strategy Officer, IT and Innovation, for Volkswagen North America; Director and Chief Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Arts Detroit, Luis Croquer; Detroit-based singer and songwriter Monica Blaire; Grammy, Emmy, and Tony award winning artist, songwriter, and
director Allee Willis; CEO of Detroit Ventures Partners and Founder and Chairman of ePrize, LLC, Josh Linkner; Steve Coy of the Hygenic Dress League and Detroit Projection Project; Terry Schwarz, Director of the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative; and Philip Delamore of UCA Textile Futures/College of Fashion .
