Saturday, November 30, 2019 – Thanksgiving Weekend – The Irwin House Gallery was thrilled to welcome Detroit Diaspora for a day-party welcoming “natives, ex-pats, transplants, and those dispersed souls from the D as well as those visiting, and those who feel an undeniable, almost spiritual, desire to represent the D world wide.”
The evening featured sets from Detroit’s own Drake Phifer, Detroit via Brooklyn’s Marilyn Griffin, and Chi-town’s Duane E Powell as well as a special performance from Detroit via Chicago’s own @Angel-A. Food was provided by Kaleidoscope Catering.
Set against the backdrop of the DETROIT FUTURE HISTORY Exhibit – which highlights the city’s people, places, imaginings, and memories – Dancing By Day was a celebration of all Detroiters, and especially those of us who carry Detroit in our hearts around the globe and return home, faithfully, this time every year.
Happy Holiday Season from The Irwin House Gallery!
