Weekly Highlights

I ntersections:
The City Through Cartography

QGIS101 I Alex Hill
Tuesday March 6; 5:30pm-7:30pm
We produce incredible amounts of data daily while at the same time we ARE the data. In this hands-on workshop participants will learn and apply Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping techniques commonly used by those practicing in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Attendees will need to bring a laptop.
Timeline Mapping I Lyz Luidens
Thursday March 15; 5:30pm-7:30pm
In this workshop, we'll be choosing one specific place in Detroit (as specific as your home, or as broad as a whole neighborhood). We'll be making several prints of this one place at different points in time, as your relationship with the location or the physical location itself has changed. We can create several different prints to show this time passing, or layer our prints on top of one another to show the passing of time and the ways the city has changed. To create these prints, we'll be using Styrofoam to create relief prints, as well as having the option of adding collograph and monoprint elements to our visual timelines. Materials will be provided.
Public Space Printing I Lyz Luidens
Tuesday March 20; 5:30pm-7:30pm
In this workshop, we'll be choosing memories that happened in public spaces in Detroit; parks, streets, bus stops, libraries, etc. We'll be creating relief printing blocks out of Styrofoam to create our maps. Materials will be provided.

You are cordially invited to the Alger House one of the finest estates on Lake Shore Drive in Grosse Pointe. Join art historians, architects, designers and restoration experts
to explore the intriguing legacy of old homes and their neighborhoods. 
The Alger House is part of The War Memorial.
32 Lake Shore Drive, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI
Tickets are $20 per lecture.

Please note that the flyer implies that one must pay our political action committee (APAC) to attend. That is  NOT the case. If you can pay the $75, great. If you can pay less, also great. If you cannot pay, please attend anyway; and yes that is still great. There is no requirement to pay APAC. Your attendance is much more valuable.
