Drinks X Design opens the doors to a unique atmosphere for attendees to experience, explore and build the relationships that lead to employment, community, and ultimately establishes Detroit as a center for design and creative innovation.
When the 20 year old Arts League of Michigan (ALM) moved into its new home in July of 2009, it was a victory after a 4-year effort. The ALM no longer had to hold arts activities in scattered Metro Detroit venues-it had its own. The new home is a 19th century building formerly known as the Harmonie Club, in what is now, Paradise Valley. It was re-named the Virgil H. Carr Cultural Arts Center. At the heart of ALM are the arts classes for youngsters ages 7 to 18 in creative writing, dance, theater, photography and especially jazz and visual arts. They have been identifiers of the ALM community-focused arts mission since 1991. That recently expanded with the addition of arts classes for adults.
Parking is available in the Opera House Parking Garage, by taking the People Mover to the Broadway Station, or by parking on the street. Please be advised that meters are in effect until 11 PM.
21 and up welcome to attend.
