On this week's Art & Soul, I talk with Omari Rush from the Ann Arbor Art Center about the upcoming "Emergent Effect" exhibition taking place this month.

We speak with Elize Jekabson of Ypsi Alloy Studios, which is partnering with the Ann Arbor Art Center on the exhibition.


We talk with her about what it's like to create three-dimensional art and the difficulties artists like her face in developing ideas and in simply finding a suitable space for developing her vision and why they created a shared space in Ypsilanti so artists can inspire each other.

We also discuss the Ann Arbor Arts Alliance's upcoming "The Party 2017," which will be honoring the extraordinary contributions and accomplishments of Washtenaw County artists and organizations, including the Buhr Foundation, Carla Diriklov Canales, Laith Al-Saadi, Allison Louise Buck, and Ken Fischer.
