Echoing the landmark feminist art project Womanhouse, led by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro in 1972, a gathering of a diverse array of 15 Detroit artists used consciousness-raising and collaboration to elevate and celebrate contemporary female perspectives. Open from Sept 19 thru Oct 31 2021, Womxnhouse Detroit offered a unique benchmark 50 years into feminist art answering the questions, What has changed for women? What remains the same?

Book Selection: January 12, 2022
The Heart: Frida Kahlo in Paris by Marc Petitjean
This intimate account offers a new, unexpected understanding of the artist’s work and of the vibrant 1930s surrealist scene.
In 1938, just as she was leaving Mexico for her first solo exhibition in New York, Frida Kahlo was devastated to learn from her husband, Diego Rivera, that he intended to divorce her. This latest blow followed a long series of betrayals, most painful of all his affair with her beloved younger sister, Cristina, in 1934. In early 1939, anxious and adrift, Kahlo traveled from the United States to France—her only trip to Europe, and the beginning of a unique period of her life when she was enjoying success on her own.
