The Scarab Club invites submissions for its Snowden Exhibition (formerly called the Silver Medal Exhibition): an annual unthemed, all-media exhibition, open to all artists. The exhibition is named for the late artist and educator, Gilda Snowden. The purpose of the Gilda Snowden Exhibition is to recognize the diversity and achievement of artists whose work shows creativity of concept, excellence of design and expertise of media; to display these works to regional audiences and to be an educational opportunity for students.

Sarah Rose Sharp is a creative generalist and writer of arts criticism and philosophy. Her writing is a mechanism for inclusivity and understanding between art makers and consumers, Detroiters and non-Detroiters.
