The Irwin House, 2351 W. Grand Blvd, Detroit, MI 48208
On the Sunday of Memorial day weekend (arguably the biggest music weekend in Detroit), the Detroit Diaspora: Day Party is King event will occur at the Irwin House Gallery, on West Grand boulevard (inarguably the city’s most musical avenue). It will highlight a line-up of exquisite music selectors and will feature electronic music that fits the mode of dance music most popular in the city during this holiday weekend, and much more. The traversing sounds, including Techno, House, Afro Beat, Hip Hop, Soul, Bossa Nova, Hip Hop, Amapiano, and more, will take music lovers on a global journey.
The event will pay tribute to two Detroit cultural pioneers—Zana Smith of Spectacles Boutique, and internationally renowned musician - Amp Fiddler. Boxed sit-down dinners will be prepared by popular Chef Nik R. Cole of Fried Chicken & Caviar.
The afternoon will also include face painting by Ifoma Stubbs and Tre Marcel and feature the sale of works and wares offered by Detroit local vendors and artisans. Inside the gallery, Urban Organic presents the original work of artists Onzie Norman and Yolanda Nichelle alongside Irwin House Gallery’s current exhibit, RE-FRAME, featuring the work of Quadre Curry.
