Free Opening at The Red Bull House of Art this Friday

Every three months the Red Bull House of Art holds an opening for the latest group of artists that they have brought into town and housed for approximately three months. While in town, each of these artist gets a chance to connect to the city and let it influence their work. The results are usually interesting and the openings are always fun. This Friday the gallery will hold its last opening for the year. This round will feature the work of Judith Supine, Julie Schenkelberg, and Lucien Shapiro as well as some sounds by Secret Shower.

Before the opening, it's important to get a little background on each of the artists. This time the show will feature Judith Supine who is known for taking old magazines and books and turning them into art. The artist has been spending a lot of time at John. K King Books, which means this gallery was literally created using materials he found in Detroit. Lucien Shapiro created masks out of found materials. He has been walking the streets of Detroit, a place that is filled with tons of little street treasures, including the occasional tumble weave. We can only imagine what kind of items he has found and what he will create with them. Julie Schenkelberg will also be showing her stuff at the show. She is known for her installations that she builds with "scrap metal, industrial paints, and concrete". Her background is in theatre sets, so her work is known to be very theatrical in nature.

Doors for this Friday's gallery will open at 7 p.m. and close promptly at 10 p.m. It is free to get in and all are welcome, but these shows are known to get crowded, so make it a point to get there early. The RBHOA is located at 1551 Winder in the Eastern Market district of Detroit. If you miss the opening, you can stop by and see the show during open hours. Learn more about that here
