What's happening in Detroit this week?
Friday, November 4 and on Saturday November 5th, I will be assisting with a beautiful art retrospective of the work of Nora Chapa Mendoza, soon to be 90 years old. Her work over decades covers the beauty of the human rights struggles across the world, particularly the global south, as well as the Chicano and Indigenous movements of the United States. Marta Carvajal will curate the exhibit.
The exhibit was inspired by Marta Carvajal, a Spanish artist now living in the Detroit area. I introduced Marta to Nora and this exhibit arose immediately and organically. Nora paints every day in her home studio and has created far more work than one exhibit could show, but there will be a large body of her work shown this week.
The details of the exhibit are as follows: Friday, November 4th by appointment RSVP 313 949-7389
Saturday, November 5th- Artist Talk: 3:00 p.m. -4:00 p.m. Exhibit till 6:00 p.m.
Design Studio 6. 8626 W. McNichols, Detroit, MI 48221. It has been a pleasure to visit Nora weekly and prepare for this exhibit. There will be lots of art for sale, so don't miss it!
