Join the Brighton Arts and Culture Commission on Thursday, June 15, for a night of artistic exploration as part of “The Story of Us: Summer Performance Series.” The free event will be held in the Sculpture Garden in downtown Brighton at 7 p.m. and will feature an in-depth talk about the Amedeo Modigliani painting, “A Woman,” by a representative from the Detroit Institute of Arts. Immediately following the talk, the event will offer an open-mic opportunity for attendees to engage in the art of storytelling by sharing their personal experiences with art.
“The Story of Us” is a multifaceted, storytelling concept aimed at encouraging and programming artistic expression, educating the public about storytelling, and creating the physical place for artists of all mediums to gather, work, and perform. The Brighton Arts and Culture Commission is leading the program in an effort to tell the stories of the people who define the Brighton community.
This event is hosted in partnership with the DIA Inside|Out program, which is funded through the Knight Foundation and has shared 10 famous reproductions of paintings housed at the Detroit Institute of Arts. These pieces have been placed throughout downtown Brighton. For those interested in going on a self-guided walking tour, a map showing the locations of each painting is available at www.brightoncity.org.
