ARTLab: 'Burgh Songs
Saturday, January 4, 2014
Free with Museum Admission
Mattress Factory Museum Lobby
When Jessica Frelinghuysen felt the need to better understand her new neighborhood of Hamtramck located in Detroit, Michigan, she created a sound suit that empowered her to meet and talk with neighbors that she may never have encountered. Her newest installation at the Mattress Factory titled My City is Your City, explores the quirks that make our neighborhoods unique and the similarities with neighborhoods around the world. Bundle up as we set you free in the Mexican War Streets with your very own sound recorder! What can you discover about the Mattress Factory's neighborhood? We will create artwork inspired by the sounds you collect and experiment with ways to share these sounds with friends and family.
