Tickets for Diego and Frida: On Sale Now

Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were an explosive couple. He carried a pistol. She carried a flask. He romanticized Detroit. She rejected it. But what they shared was a belief in communism, a thirst for tequila and a passion for each other. Discover how they left their mark on Detroit.

John Quincy Adams Ward: The Freedman

John Quincy Adams Ward

The Freedman, 1863

“This artist chose a classic Greek pose to depict the physical and symbolic strength of a man newly freed from slavery. This resonates with me because it shows strength instead of the stereotypical weakness or lack of intelligence of men who were enslaved.”
