Say It Loud: Art, History, Rebellion

July 23, 2017 - January 2, 2018

Say It Loud: Art, History, Rebellion is a two-part exhibition that commemorates the 1960s rebellions, observes the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion, and compares the uprisings of the past to the upheavals that shocked our nation in the 21st century.


The first part of Say It Loud, will be installed outside on the museum’s grounds. Using photographs and quotes, which will present the events that led up to the Detroit rebellion and describe what occurred in its aftermath. United We Stand, the 24-foot sculpture by Charles McGee, serves as a symbol for the only way that Detroit can continue to manifest and maintain change for the future. We invite visitors to view these installations anytime of the day or night. 

The second part of Say It Loud will be presented inside the museum’s AT&T and Chase Galleries, during regular museum hours. This exhibition brings together more than 40 nationally recognized artists from multiple generations, and relies on works across disciplines to help illustrate the awe, tragedy, and potential for transformation when the people rebel.
