We invite you to the fourth annual Paint Detroit with Generosity exhibit opening at the magnificent Fisher Building / Fisher Bakery on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
Meet some of the artists in the Mint Creative Summer Jobs program who were paid to create these beautiful pieces and learn more about the wide variety of charities in and near Detroit.
Guests may nominate a nonprofit organization to receive one of the three paintings that were not specifically painted for a charity. The Fisher Bakery will sell baked goods and light meals, and Mint will have greeting cards available for purchase.
Sponsors and partners are welcome to support this initiative. We are grateful to our current sponsors: Blossoms florists, Collected Detroit, the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs, Eric’s I’ve Been Framed Shop and Sherwood Forest Gallery. And we are very thankful to The Platform and The Fisher Building.
See the creative work that will be donated to 30 Detroit area nonprofits at the Oct. 4 opening of our third annual Paint Detroit with Generosity exhibit.
This one will be held at the Boll Family YMCA, 1401 Broadway, in downtown Detroit, from 5 to 8 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
More details are on our Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/929559857223437/
The exhibit will be up through Oct. 31.
Jevona Fudge Watson wanted young people’s art in her new coffee shop Detroit Sip. So she sought out Mint Artists Guild months ago.
Recently we installed 15 pieces – including three Detroit skylines – at her shop on McNichols in the LiveSix area. Mint member / photographer Omari Norman showed up to help – and to try Sip’s coffee. Detroit Sip will open soon; we’re watching Facebook for updates. And Mint Artists will be proud to help launch this small black-owned business.
Mint Artists is excited to share the paintings that will then be given to the City Year, Coalition on Temporary Shelter, Junior Achievement, Ruth Ellis Center and more. The exhibit opens Thursday, Sept. 8 at The Carr Center downtown, from 6 to 9 p.m. Join us in celebrating generosity and creativity.
Meet Tulani Pryor, the first artist hired for the first-ever Mint summer creative jobs program. And read about Mint’s upcoming events – including the Belle Isle Art Fair Aug. 6 & 7 and the Art of Resilience the next weekend – and strategic planning in our monthly e-letter.
Mint Artists next exhibit will bring together tea and made-in-Detroit art. It’s taking place at SocraTea in Midtown Detroit and an opening is scheduled for Friday. Of course, SocraTea serves Mint tea – and even donated some to us. Please join us Friday 6 to 8 p.m. and meet our two featured artists.
