Join Motor City Pride for its kick off event, the third annual Beyond the Bar: An LGBT Art and Design showcase. Enjoy great art, delicious appetizers, beer and wine as well as local performances from local DJ Lena. A silent auction will be held to benefit the Ruth Ellis Center. Take home a unique piece of art and help make this the largest LGBT art show in the country.
In 2012 AIGA hosted the second annual Beyond the Bar. The exhibition facilitated the opportunity for local LGBT professionals to express themselves in a creative format, surpassing the stereotype of what it means to be LGBT. Both professionals and students embraced the opportunity to display their perspective talents, ranging from print and digital to illustrations and identity.
