LOXXVII: Arts & Culture
On Wednesday, April 12, LOXXVII participated in their Arts and Culture session which was held at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. The objective was to gain a broad perspective of art and cultural opportunities in Oakland County and Southeast Michigan. The session also focused on exposing participants to the issues facing the future of the arts and the impact on the social, economic and cultural climate in our region.
Detroit Institute of Arts President, Salvador Salort-Pons was a special guest speaker. He shared his vision for the future of the DIA.
The class toured the Cranbrook Art Collection at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services and spent the second half of the day at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center.
"This session sparked some ideas and I plan on writing a grant which will allow art and culture to be used as a part of treatment planning for children and families."
