There are two things to do this last afternoon in Detroit, and if you have time you have to do both! Start by visiting the Scarab Club. They have two gallery spaces in their building with rotating exhibitions that change every six weeks. It is a super cool spot and free and open to the public!

Michigan Opera Theatre and Chamber Music at the Scarab Club are pleased to present Americans in Paris, a vocal and chamber music concert, on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the Lounge Gallery of Detroit’s historic Scarab Club.
In anticipation of MOT’s upcoming production of Ricky Ian Gordon’s 27, an opera based on the lives of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, this concert will explore the Parisian salon culture of the early 20th century of which Stein was a prominent fixture. Artists from Michigan Opera Theatre and Chamber Music at the Scarab Club will offer works by Virgil Thomson, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, Lili Boulanger, Paul Bowles, and Ricky Ian Gordon. Tickets are $25 at the door, $20 in advance, and $10 for students.
The Scarab Club was founded 110 years ago as a sort of do-it-yourself project by Detroit’s upper-crusters to celebrate, discuss, and enjoy art. It set up shop a stone’s throw from the Detroit Institute of Arts when the DIA was brand-new, and celebrates its 90th anniversary next year. It’s a one-of-a-kind club, and the rafters of its second-floor lounge have been signed by such artists as Marcel Duchamp, Diego Rivera, Norman Rockwell, and Gilda Snowden. It’s a priceless piece of history.
