The Red Bull House of Art is one of many galleries that work with Art Detroit Now, the umbrella organization that formed to support arts programming in Detroit and across the region. Art Detroit Now has also been behind a push to get art spaces to program events on Thursdays.
This Thursday, May 16, the Red Bull House of Art will keep its main gallery, as well as both artist’s studios, open for patrons to mingle and mix among the art. Drew Pompa, label founder, DJ, and music producer of the We Are All Machines
label, will be providing music to accompany the art on display. It goes 5 - 9 p.m. and it's free.
Red Bull House of Art
is at 1551 Winder St., Detroit's Eastern Market.

Kids of all ages, it's time to pull out your ties and taffeta, time to clean up and get dirty with your dance floor faves played by Haute to Death DJs, who this Saturday celebrate their sixth annual Prom Night at the Temple Bar.
What can you expect? How about spiked punch, prom portrait do-overs, and, of course, a vote for the king and queen.
Mostly it's about the variety of the music (man). It for 21 and overs only and $1 before midnight, $2 afterward.
Prom attire strongly advised.
