Indoor Winter Activity!

DAMDAM

Each year in January, Detroit turns its attention to design and creativity. In 2009 the Detroit Artists Market will take its own look at design with the DAM Design Show, running January 16 through January 31. This show will look at the entire creative process from concept to design to creation of an artistic and functional piece. Ten designers will take on this process in creating “Chair”. The show will exhibit pieces from their creative process, including concept sketches, scale models, and the finished piece. The DAM Design Show will provide an intimate look into how design “happens”, and results in unique functional pieces. The market is open Tuesday- Saturday from 11 to 6, and admission is free to the public. As a bonus to you, be sure to check out a Museum Adventure Pass before you go and get 10% all purchases!
