The series was created in partnership with thirteen local commercial, artist-run, and independent galleries.

Each gallery cohosted a residency for their selected speaker and identified local artists for studio visits.+ More details
Baltimore-native Shinique Smith works widely across painting, drawing, collage, and installation art. Smith creates environments that evoke movement and energy, while occupying the space with a range of emotional colors. Her works evoke embodied artifacts with consciences of street smarts. Graffiti, secondhand finds, and neo-tribalism interact with Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Japanese calligraphy to create playful alternations between overt messages and subtext, evoking the textile weaves of Smith’s oft-used materials themselves. Smith says, “I think my work is very American, and the way we consume and cast off is unique to us.” In an exhaustive effort to process and restore culture, Smith creates menageries that blend high- and lowbrow expressions of the artistic process. In this project, Smith creates a site-specific installation in the museum’s Education Wing in collaboration with youth from Reach Studio Art Center in Lansing.+ More details
