KEEPING IT WEIRD: CELEBRATING 200 YEARS OF YPSILANITI GREATNESS
About the show
Keeping it Weird: Celebrating 200 Years of Ypsilanti Greatness” is a vibrant tapestry of local artistic expression. In curating this show, I wanted to assemble a collection that truly embodies the eclectic and diverse spirit of Ypsilanti. This exhibition showcases the incredible range of ideas and creativity that thrives within our community, and it’s a testament to the town’s unwavering commitment to embracing the unconventional.
Our local artists have come together to present a striking array of works, each a unique testament to their individual perspectives and inspirations. From stunning landscapes, portraiture, thought-provoking abstracts, to whimsical, provocative, and meticulously crafted sculpture, this exhibition is a celebration of Ypsilanti’s thriving creative community. As you explore, I invite you to immerse yourself in the diverse narratives, concepts, and vibes which I have been honored to help curate along with our panel of local artists and RAC Staff. “Keeping it Weird” is a celebration of the boundless potential of artistic expression and a tribute to the unapologetically unique character of our beloved city.
