CASS CORRIDOR EXHIBIT AT THE UNIVERSITY GALLERY: A new exhibit "Subverting Modernism: Cass Corridor Revisited 1966-1980" will premier Monday, March 11 and run through Sunday, April 28, at the EMU University Gallery, located in the Student Center. Go to Cass Corridor Event to read more. With a 1960s revolutionary spirit, the Cass Corridor artists, who worked in a run down area near Wayne State University, overthrew Modernism and ushered in Post-Modernism, exploring such themes as industrial and post-industrial Detroit, existential vulnerability, the human need for shelter, the persistence of the life force, and the presence or absence of order in nature. Gallery hours are Mon. and Thu. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tue. and Wed. 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Fri. and Sat. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Go to Upcoming Gallery Events for more events.

Hosted by the Arts Masters Association. For more information, go to AMA Studio Walk.


MOVIE - "IMAGES FROM DETROIT'S CASS CORRIDOR": In this film, artists share their personal visions by being in geographical proximity to one another, making works that mark an era in Detroit's history that is now regarded as being highly significant. Directed by Shaun Bangert and Kathryn Brackett Luchs, the movie "Images from Detroit's Cass Corridor," will be shown on Wednesday, March 27, at 5:30 p.m., in the Halle Library Auditorium. During the late 1960s and through the 1970s, some artists living in Detroit explored alternative, inventive and personal approaches to making art.

The film is a tense, visual montage combining original silent footage with new information that brings to light the mood and art of the time. Artists presented in the movie include John Egner, Steve Foust, Michael Luchs, Nancy Mitchnick, Gordon Newton, Ellen Phelan, Paul Schwarz and Robert Sestok. Original music by Mick Vranich accompanies this illuminating documentary. For more information, contact Greg Tom at gtom@emich.edu or Julie Myers at jmyers@emich.edu.
