Essay’d: 30 Detroit Artists book launch!

20160804_182338Wow, what a night. We officially launched Essay’d: 30 Detroit Artists into the world, with an all-out celebration that exceeded my wildest dreams. From the massive turnout, to the graciousness of the MOCAD in hosting us, to the tear-jerking special address by Marsha Battle Philpot (aka Marsha Music), to the tremendous outpouring of love and excitement over the project – it was all I could have hoped for. After a lot of intensive work on Essay’d, it was truly gratifying to see how important it is for members of the Detroit art community.

Thanks to all who came out! Thanks to WSUP for their interest in us and such a beautiful end product! Thanks to my co-collaborators, Steve Panton, Matthew Piper, and Dennis Nawrocki! We did it!!

And if you missed the party, but still want the goods, never fear – you can order your very own copy right here. I heard a rumor that there may be forthcoming volumes in this series…but it’s based on book sales, so do with that what you will!
