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.
