AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently visited the Detroit Institute of Arts to check out their new exhibit “Making Home: Contemporary Works from the DIA.” Around 50 works in a variety of media both affirm common symbols of domestic space and question popular ideas of home as a symbol of comfort, belonging and permanency. Works by celebrated Detroit-based artists Bill Rauhauser and Charles McGee are included in the show, providing viewers with images of Detroit that address several themes in Making Home, including the effects of urbanization. Viewers will have the opportunity to see works that have not been on public view recently, including Lorna Simpson’s work on felt, Bathroom. “Making Home” will remain on display through June 6, 2018.
