It’s more fun with friends!
Join the Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art for FOURTH FRIDAYS FOR FRIENDS—an opportunity to enjoy in-depth discussions about contemporary art, attend private receptions hosted by FMCA, and delight in the DIA’s fabulous Friday Night Live performances.
Urban farmer and interdisciplinary artist Kate Daughdrill values art that connects people and food that connects people. Using Claes Oldenburg's sculpture Good Humor Bar as a spring board, she will discuss her creative practice at the intersection of art and community.
Daughdrill's recent projects include Detroit SOUP, a monthly dinner that funds micro-grants for creative projects in Detroit, and the Edible Hut, a community space with a living, edible roof in a public park in Detroit's Osborn neighborhood. This past summer, she organized a creative CSA (community-supported agriculture) from her farm that provides shareholders with diverse creative produce such as vegetables, art objects, and prepared items each week during the growing season. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Cranbrook Art Museum, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Fred Torres Collaborations and Kunstverein Wolfsburg. She is a 2013 Kresge Arts Fellow.
