Detroit's Scarab Club

Sitting on John R and Farnsworth right behind the DIA is the art organization called the Scarab Club which dates back to 1907. The scarab insignia embedded in the brick over the door represents the Egyptian symbol for rebirth and it was made from Detroit's pewabic tile. Inside are various exhibitions and classrooms and lots of artsy stuff that includes literature and music as well.  The ceiling beams sport some pretty significant signatures like Norman Rockwell and Diego Rivera amongst others! Open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5pm, their mission is to educate and enlighten. The third Thursday of every month celebrates emerging artists.  February 16th highlights Brett Sullivan's photography.
