It started as a casual conversation about art at a local Coney island, two friends chatting over coffee and eggs.

Now nine years in, the Detroit Fine Arts Breakfast Club has transformed into a weekly, standing-room-only affair at Noni’s Sherwood Grille on Livernois Avenue between 7 and 8 Mile.

The club’s recipe for success lies in the simplicity of its ingredients. While the gathering has gained special resonance in the African-American community, all walks of artists are welcome to sign up and show two pieces in front of a captive audience that’s made up of the city’s creative class — a rotating cast of art collectors, gallery owners and figureheads. As artists peel back the layers behind the work, attendees respond with questions, critiques and even bids. If you want a seat, get there early. The growing popularity forced the club to embrace a breakfast-for-dinner mentality, so meetings are now held at 5 p.m. The events can draw up to 100 people each week, and the club has about 300 members.

  • Tuesday 8/20/19
  • Return to Chicago
