Winter Art Tour

On this week’s "Art & Soul," 89.1 WEMU’s Lisa Barry talks to Omari Rush, the executive director of CultureSource, and Cara Rosaen, the lead organizer of the Winter Art Tour, which is happening the weekend of December 8-10 in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.

Lisa Barry

Ernestine Ruben, or "Ernie" as she prefers to be called, toured the Willow Run Industrial Complex a few years ago in Ypsilanti Township and took a series of pictures.  The plant was designed and built by her grandfather, famed architect Albert Kahn.  Those pictures are now on display at the University of Michigan Art Museum in an exhibit called "Mobilizing Memory."

Lisa Barry recently had a chance to tour the exhibit with the 86 year-old artist, and she explains what she was trying to capture.
