Spotlight on Detroit: The city’s newest museum—featuring multi-media and light-based arts—is the first in the U.S. and second of its kind in the world. Kunsthalle Detroit (pronounced KOONST-hah-leh, or “art-hall” in German) is now open to the public. (And if you’re in the Detroit-area, be sure to stop by Park West Gallery for a visit!) {via The Detroit News}
