Detroit News – Art X Detroit festival opens Thursday

  By Michael H. Hodges - Detroit News Fine Arts Writer - April 6, 2015

Art X Detroit, the biennial arts festival sponsored by the Kresge Foundation, kicks off Thursday evening with the opening of the "Kresge Arts Experience" at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.

The festival runs through April 26 and involves exhibitions, performance and panels throughout Midtown. The MOCAD exhibit at the festival's heart features the work — whether visual, literary or performance-based — of 11 Kresge Artist Fellows drawn from the past couple years, as well as 2014 Kresge Eminent Artist and photographer Bill Rauhauser.

Three 2013 Kresge Artist Fellows in the visual arts — Kate Daughdrill, Jason E. Carter and Bryant Tillman — illustrate the creative breadth on exhibit, and the quirky artistic sensibility typical of Kresge grantees.
