Thursday, January 20, 2011
Public Open House: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The DPS Office of Public Safety Headquarters and Operations Center is part of the $500.5 million DPS School Construction Program funded by the Proposal S Bond Referendum voters approved in November 2009 for school capital improvement projects. We broke ground in July on the 23,000-square-foot building near I-75 & Clay Street, and just six months later the command center is operational. The new building will house administration and operations space for DPS police officers and staff and also includes conference and training rooms, public waiting areas, holding facilities for juveniles and adults, intake and processing areas, and the district’s three canines from the K-9 unit.
For questions or any other inquires please contact Carol Weaver, DPS Community Liaison for the DPS School Construction Program at 313-409-3449 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Assistant Dean of College for Creative Studies and internationally renowned artist offer unique opportunity for Detroit area artists.
Detroit area artists will have an opportunity to have their work critiqued during a studio visit by artist Charles McGee and notable arts and culture critic Rebecca Mazzei.
Beginning on January 15th, Whitdel Arts, a new contemporary art gallery in Southwest Detroit, will allow artists working in all mediums to install their work for an open call exhibition.
Once the exhibition opens to the public on February 5th, McGee and Mazzei will select two to three artists each who they will visit in their studio to discuss and critique their work. “This is a great opportunity for artists to gain some valuable feedback on their work by two highly respected individuals in the Detroit art community”, says Whitdel Arts co-director Lauren Montgomery.
Charles McGee, who is the founder of the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID), has paintings, assemblages and sculptures in prestigious national and international collections, and on permanent display at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Rebecca Mazzei is currently the Assistant Dean at the College for Creative Studies and former Arts and Culture Editor of the Metro Times.
Whitdel Arts invites artists working in all mediums (drawing, painting, printmaking, photo, sculpture, installation, video, etc.) to install their own work during the drop off dates listed below. Whitdel Arts Co-Directors will be available to offer help and advice on installation, as well as lighting advice and other exhibition preparation.
Artwork must be dropped off in person at Whitdel Arts on the specified drop off dates. Each artist may submit not more than 5 pieces. Accepted work will be on a “first come, first serve” basis, as a limited amount of space is available for this exhibition. Whitdel Arts reserves the right to omit any artwork if the artist submits more than 5 pieces. No entry fee is required to participate, and ⅓ percentage of any sales during the exhibition will go towards the gallery.
Exhibition drop off and installation dates:
Saturday, January 15 from noon-3pm
Tuesday, January 18 from noon- 5pm
Saturday, January 22 from noon-3pm
The exhibition will open to the public on Saturday, February 5 from 6pm to 9pm. The exhibition will run through February 26th, 2011.
