FORWARD ARTS

I SEE YOU, DSO.
09.10.14

Outside of New Music Detroit's Strange Beautiful Music VII this Saturday (which you should definitely go to), the DSO has (at least) two upcoming events in their Music Box venue that is of high interest around here. My Brightest Diamond comes next week on September 19th as part of her tour (you'll see Shara Worden Saturday too, if you go to Strange Beautiful Music), and Shigeto on October 23, who will be playing live with other musicians for the first time.

Both events are definitive highlights both locally and nationally, which makes them all the more interesting. Check out the DSO website for more details HERE.

You also might remember Shara Worden from, among other things, Matthew Barney's River of Fundament film that showed at the DIA earlier this year. That film, partially filmed in Detroit, was the very first project Forward Arts was hired for. And now the musical circle is complete...


CHRYSLER AND 5 ARTISTS FROM MEXICO
08.08.14

Recently Forward Arts had the pleasure of helping Chrysler host 5 artists from Mexico City, in town to get some Detroit inspiration. We got to show them around Detroit, some of it's history, and of course some different art spots around town. The artists will now go back to Mexico City, and produce works inspired by our city's culture and the new Chrysler 200. Excited to see what they come up with! We'll post up what they produce in the fall when completed.

Our favorite part of the day is when we ate Supino Pizza outside Recycle Here! They spoke with Forward Arts and some friends we brought along, electronic music artist Kevin Reynolds and Detroit cultural ambassador Adriel Thornton.

TOGETHER, WE SING. HAPPY 313 DETROIT!
08.01.14

Last week was filled with sparklers, ice cream (3x), kites, jazz, art, pizza, beers, a really great hill, Detroit funk & soul, greek hotdogs, wine...and sing alongs. We must have sang Happy Birthday to Detroit last week 5-6 times. This was the best of them, over 450+ came out for the birthday party at Detroit Historical Museum.

Many, many thanks to all the groups that made Detroit Love 313 special, including Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, Rivière28, MotorCity Wine, Ponyride, Detroit Institute of Arts, C+PADetroit, Detroit 313 Society, Detroit Historical Society, Eastern Market Corporation, Preservation Detroit, DIA's Founders Junior Council, Detroit Young Professionals, IXITI, Motor City Soul Club, Young Lions, Kris Kurzawa, and so many others. Can't wait for next year! #CityBall
