Juror MaryAnn Wilkinson will give a presentation on the Detroit art scene since the 1970s at 5 p.m. in room 165 adjacent to the museum. Wilkinson served more than 20 years as curator of modern and contemporary art at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

The exhibit’s closing reception will follow from 6-8 p.m. It will feature food, beverages and live acoustic music by Troy Graham of Marquette Gratiot Lake Road of Houghton. There will also be a Yooper photo booth with props and costumes courtesy of Da Yoopers Tourist Trap. Attendees can dress up and have photos taken, with prints available for $5 each.
