Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I just want you all to know that I appreciate that you read and look forward to the Weekend Roundup every week. I’m no Oprah but if I had the means to take you all on a trip to Australia I’d do it!

Hell, I wish I could take you all out to Lafayette Coney Island let alone all the way around the world. I do, however, have plans to do something special for you. Stay tuned!

The 2009 Funky Ferndale Art Fair.

Weekend Roundup

1. DIY Street Fair -Celebrate the do-it-yourself spirit with over 100 artists and crafters, live music, Michigan beer, a kid zone, and more. This was one of my favorite festivals last year! September 17-19.

2. Funky Ferndale Art Fair - And on the other side of Woodward is a juried art show featuring funky and fashionable finds. September 17-19.

3. "Lost Detroit" Book Release Party - City Bird hosts the launch of this book that explores 12 of Detroit's forgotten landmarks. September 16th.

4. We Like Music Festival - Old Miami and The Magic Stick host this extravaganza of downtempo, hip-hop, house, ambient, dubstep, techno, and abstract beats. September 18th.

5. The Jane Show at the Museum of New Art - This photographic exhibit focuses on one museum visitor, bringing art and the spectator together as one. My favorite Jane, Jane Fader, happens to be the focus of the show. Opens September 18th.

6. Birmingham House Tour - Walk through 8 beautiful homes in Birmingham and Bloomfield Hills including a house designed by Yamasaki, who designed the World Trade Center, and a home in downtown Birmingham that was built in 1921, complete with a white picket fence. September 16th.

7. MORC Photography Exhibition - "Southeast Michigan: Picture It" - The event at the Detroit Artists Market features 30 photographs of various cultural and historic venues throughout Southeast Michigan shot by individuals with developmental disabilities. September 17th.

Jane is the perfect person for this kind of show. Incredible serendipity. I cannot wait to see it.
