2015 POP-X art festival

. October 1, 2015.

Artists, architects, and the creatively-inclined will all mass under a series of small pavilions throughout Ann Arbor as part of the 2015 POP-X art festival. Hosted by the Ann Arbor Art Center, the pavilions are the main attraction during this ten-day gathering. Designed by a group of featured architects, the exteriors will be used for a series of engaging events including lectures, demonstrations, and come-one-come-all art making classes, while selected local artists take over the interiors to showcase their own contemporary artwork in truly immersive fashion. Retirees and K-12 students, make sure to inquire online about field trip availability, while everyone is welcome at a succession of varied drop-in art workshops going on throughout the week. Pavilions will be popping up all over the Ann Arbor area, but a grouping of ten pavilions on Liberty Park Plaza, playfully dubbed the “art village,” will serve as the main hub of activity.

10am-8pm daily, October 15-24

Judy Banker’s Buffalo Motel

New album captures the permanence of memories When I talk to Judy Banker about her new album, Buffalo Motel, I can’t avoid my first question being about one particular song, “Haggerty.” I can’t wait for you to hear it in a live setting at The Ark on January 9. Even with headphones, a potent poignancy
