Shop EDITION Online

MoreLand co-organizer Sarah Turner will be at EDITION this Friday, December 1, 2-6 pm. A great opportunity to meet Sarah and leran more about the project and artists involved!

Organized by Iris Eichenberg and Sarah Turner, MoreLand takes its inspiration from an essential community stronghold, a site of function, curiosity and learning: the hardware store. For MoreLand, 24 art, craft, and designed-based makers were invited to reimagine the things they love in hardware stores. While the makers are international – working in seven countries, but regularly traveling and collaborating in many more – MoreLand reveals a universal love for what is straightforward, functional and direct.

Participating Artists:
Kat Burdine, Eunji Choi, Terry Conrad, Iris Eichenberg, Fabio J. Fernández, Chitra Gopalakrishnan, Ken Gray, Gésine Hackenberg, Esther Knobel, Travis Lewis, Myra Mimlitsch Gray, Eija Mustonen, Gitte Nygaard, Suzanne Pugh, Alexis Richards, Ellie Richards, Nadège Roscoe-Rumjahn, Jovencio de la Paz, David Schafer / Studio Make, Alberte Tranberg, Robert Turek, Sarah Turner, Studio Gorm (John and Wonhee Arndt)

Holiday Book Signing: Michel Arnaud, Detroit the Dream is Now
A Benefit for Write A House

We are excited to support the Write A House project in Detroit (A Writer's Residency, Reimagined) with this Holiday book signing on Saturday, December 2, 4-5 pm. All proceeds go to support the project.

Stock up on the holiday gift every Detroit lover you love will love: Detroit: The Dream is Now, the 2017 visual essay on the city's art, design, and food scene. Photographer Michel Arnaud will be present to sign books for everyone on your shopping list. Copies are $40 and proceeds will benefit Write A House. 

Detroit: The Dream Is Now is a visual essay on the rebuilding and resurgence of the city of Detroit by photographer Michel Arnaud, co-author of Design Brooklyn. Arnaud aims his lens at the emergent creative enterprises and new developments taking hold in the still-vibrant city. The book explores Detroit’s rich industrial and artistic past while giving voice to the dynamic communities that will make up its future. The first section provides a visual tour of the city’s architecture and neighborhoods, while the remaining chapters focus on the developing design, art, and food scenes through interviews and portraits of the city’s entrepreneurs, artists, and makers.
