"A Night of Visual Arts, Fashion, Poetry & Dance"
Toulouse-Lautrec is best known for his works depicting scenes from cabarets, theaters, dance halls, and brothels. This exhibition features approximately 150 original works on paper, including 35 drawings.
Each artist has created a contemporary work in response to the city's struggles and successes post-1933, touching on broader themes that are relevant across the nation. Topics include the many industries, ideals, and events that have propelled America forward—from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s pivotal yet under-recognized speech in Grosse Pointe, Michigan in 1968; to the development of labor unions, urban farming, and the birth of Motown; to the creation of central symbols of the American dream including sports stadiums and the automobile. The murals reference innovative urban responses to enormous losses in population and exalt the fortitude of the city and its people.
