NOW AND THEN: ARTISTS CONTEMPLATE THE SUMMER OF 1967

April 28, 2017 - May 27, 2017

The events of the summer of 1967 changed Detroit and surrounding communities forever, in ways both clear and subtle. As the 50th anniversary draws near, many are reflecting on that summer in Detroit and its impact. Bringing together a wide range of voices and perspectives, the Detroit Artists Market is privileged to present Now and Then: Artists Contemplate the Summer of 1967, curated by Jeff Cancelosi. 

Detroit Artists Market is one of dozens of partners in the Detroit Historical Society’s Detroit 67: Looking Back to Move Forward project which aims to bring together diverse voices and communities around the effects of this historic crisis.
