Bethany Shorb Unveils DDF Official Print

We are excited to present the debut RUN from Detroit artist Bethany Shorb as she unveils the Detroit Design Festival’s official print for the 2012 weekend festivities.

Bethany Shorb will be among the many local artists and galleries highlighted in the upcoming Eastern Market After Dark,which will feature a tour around Detroit’s burgeoning art scene throughout Eastern Market.

Although Eastern Market is often recognized as the food hub of Detroit–bustling with Saturday morning shoppers, slaughterhouses and specialty grocery stores– after dark a different hustle takes over the neighborhood, a creative movement hidden in lofts, studios and galleries living in the market.  The night tour will take guests into studios, galleries, artists’ residencies, hacker spaces, shops and letterpress studios.

The tour will give guests a chance to explore the market often not experienced. Allowing for a sneak peak into a creative community that works late nights and early mornings to create on every level. The tour will stop at over ten locations in the market, opening their doors for workshops, shopping and viewing. Studio doors will open at 7p.m. and close at 11p.m.
