We went downtown Detroit to see all the festivities. There is so much going on, you can’t catch half of it!
First a stop at the International Institute for international food. They were giving children balloons, and had them all in the corner of the room looking festive.
Then a quick stop at the Detroit Institute of Arts. A wonderful setting for a jazz band in front of the Rivera Murals.
We moved over to the Detroit Public Library, someone did a great job lighting the building.
I love this place, so I took most my pictures there. This is one of the ceilings upstairs.
There are several murals in the library,
and lots of beautiful trim.
My buds, Jan and Leslyn joined us.
We also checked out some local galleries and shops. One of them had these huge balloons that changed colors! What a great time! We also visited the Center for Creative Studies, my Alma matter, where many students were selling wonderful things. We also saw a great folk singer at the Barnes and Nobel. We didn’t make it to so many things, though. Next year!
