WDET 101.9FM says
An audio-visual storytelling experience of Detroit’s hair legacy and culture featuring photography by Justin JMillz Milhouse and audio stories by Shannon Cason.

Sponsored by Optik Detroit PopUp

Since the 1980s, Detroit stylists have designed larger than life hair creations to be shown off at the HAIR WARS - Detroit event. Behind these extravagant formations of shapes and colors is a local industry of highly skilled barbers and stylists. Through hair they have personified Detroit’s culture of innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity.

Audio storyteller Shannon Cason and photographer Justin Milhouse have collaborated to tell the story of Detroit, “Hair Capital of the World.” Experience narratives from local beauty and barber shops at this photography and audio storytelling exhibit.

This opening event will also include a preview of what you can expect at this year's Hair Wars: The Motown Show, with brief stage performances by Detroit hair entertainers Keith Matthews, Adonnus Terrell and Alonzo Palmer.

This exhibit will be on display at The Artist Village Detroit through April 23.

Made possible with support from individual contributors, the Knight Foundation, Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, National Endowment for the Arts, The Kresge Foundation and our series sponsor Optik Detroit PopUp.
