Gallery hours 1-6; ramble leaves at 2

Picnic Club will be joining forces with the Detroit Area Rambling Network for a picnic adventure starting at 2:00 this Saturday, January 31. We’ll set out on a hike in the direction of the I-94 Industrial Renaissance Zone, which hosted Picnic Club’s inaugural event in April of last year. We’ll be returning to see what’s changed on this urban prairie as the seasons have passed. Where we once rustled through brush participating in the “Birdwatching Within the Barricades” picnic, we’ll find a scene rendered unrecognizable by more than a mere layer of snow.
Check out the DARN blog for more information and photos on this special picnic and other rambles! From there you can also sign up for the mailing list to receive timely ramble updates. Hope to wander with you this weekend!
Saturday January 24th, 1-6pm
@ Public Pool 3309 Caniff Avenue, Hamtramck
Join us this Saturday for “Ideas for Creative Leisure” a picnic workshop focused on accumulating both inspired and mundane ideas for recreation. We will draw inspiration from the Fluxus event scores of Yoko Ono, George Brecht and others. The original event scores that are produced during this workshop will be distributed to the masses via a 25 cent vending machine located within the gallery. This is also a great opportunity to see the “Picnics in the Polar Vortex” exhibition, and peruse the Picnic Club Library!
Submission deadline: December 14th
Picnic Club is pleased to announce our first exhibition! The exhibition is being hosted by Public Pool in Hamtramck and will open January 10th and close on February 21st, with a series of picnics occurring throughout the show! The exhibition will function as a survey of our first year of picnics, a travel agency of the cracks in the sidewalk, a library and an art exhibition. We need your help! If you have attended a picnic and have ANY photos, artifacts or art objects that resulted we would love to display them!
