Unobstructed Views

July 27 - August 10, 2017


Library Street Collective and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) presented UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS - a group exhibition at the historic W. Hawkins Ferry house. A modernist gem, the house was restored in 2015 with the owner’s original intention in mind—to showcase a vast art collection and views of Lake St. Clair. Unobstructed Views included a curated collection of over 30 groundbreaking contemporary artists. The home setting offered the opportunity for conversation about the original Hawkins Ferry House art collection, currently located in museums throughout the country.
