Gallup Park / Sunday, July 13

From the Tigris and Euphrates to the Seine or the Thames, every great city on earth is built on a river, and Ann Arbor is no different. Every summer, Washtenaw county residents gather to give praise to the running water on Huron River Day. This year's event will feature live music on the scenic banks as well as food vendors.

DuPont’s Floodplains Flows Onward

Water can be purifying, it can clean and soothe and nourish. It can also be something so formidable as to wear its way through soil and rock. Fittingly, then, Chris DuPont has titled his forthcoming album Floodplains, evoking a subtle but potent force of nature where a river mimics the unpredictable bends of life, depositing
