Drink and Design your own 3D Vinyl Figure at The Cranbrook Museum this Friday

The Cranbrook Art Museum is one of the most underrated spaces in Metro Detroit. They celebrate local and national artists and continuously bring new and interesting things to their space. This year alone, they hosted shows featuring Jean-Michel Basquiat and Shepard Fairey. Every time we visit, we have a great time and enjoy looking at all of the art, not just the stuff that we came for. At any given time they can have anywhere from three to six shows on display! The best part is that it is super affordable to get in and walk around. The most it's going to cost you is $10, but they have discounts for seniors, children, and students, including free admission for those 12 and under.
Right now the museum has five different shows taking place. This includes True to Form: Selections from the Permanent Collection, Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped, Danielle Dean: A Portrait of True Red, Binion/Saarinen: A McArthur Binion Project, and Wild Vinyl: Designer Art Toys. Generally, the museum is open from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., but every once in awhile they host special late night events where attendees can buy a drink to enjoy while they browse the galleries. They also have fun activities that you can participate in during their late night parties.
Their next late night party is this Friday and they have a very interesting way for you to interact with their art while you are there. They will be having a DIY Vinyl Art Figure class at the late night event where attendees will be able to purchase and draw on their own vinyl figure after taking a look at what the newest show "Designer Art Toys" has to offer. Wine and art is a really fun way to experience the museum and seeing everything late at night during a private event is a little bit more lux then going during the day. 

This Friday's after hours event will run from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. and it is only $10 to get in. Make sure you bring a few extra dollars for the cash bar and to purchase a figure to design!
