CALL FOR ARTISTS: 2015 Drunken Historical Society Detroit Fete d'Anniversaire

2015 Drunken Historical Society Detroit Fete d'Anniversaire

The Detroit Drunken Historical Society, in conjunction with Corktown Studios, is calling all artists, designers, and makers to conceive and create visual interpretations of Detroit Folklore for a Detroit birthday celebration this summer.

The Detroit Drunken Historical Society would like to commemorate the City of Detroit’s birthday this July with a party celebrating the folklore of our city’s French past. We are seeking artists of all media to generate new works surrounding a selection of French-centric historical works of fiction provided.

The Detroit Drunken Historical Society is a meetup group that hosts monthly activities at local bars in Detroit for people to come out and learn about Detroit’s 300 year history in a casual, engaging environment.

When and Where
The pieces will be put on display and up for sale in a Silent Auction at Jam Handy on East Grand Boulevard in Detroit during the Detroit Drunken Historical Society’s City FĂȘte d'Anniversaire on July 24th, 2015 at the Jam Handy

Pieces will need to be delivered to that location one (1) week prior to the event date. Exact time will be set closer to event date.
